The third season of Scandi-noir series The Bridge begins on SBS this week.
It picks up 13 months after the events of the second season.
This series first aired in Denmark in September.
Saga Norén is still working at Malmö County Police, but she misses her only friend Martin Rohde who is serving a ten year prison sentence. Saga, however, is convinced that she did the only right thing by reporting him, and that she cannot be associated with a convicted murderer.
The story starts with when a famous Danish gender activist and owner of Copenhagen’s first gender-neutral children’s nursery is found murdered on a building site in Malmö. Saga is forced to work with a new Danish colleague, who has difficulties in accepting Saga for who she is. They quickly come to the conclusion that the murderer has been very particular about the aesthetics and wanted them to find the body. This marks the beginning of a line of spectacular murders that eventually become personal for Saga and her career looks to be at risk and the questions is raised, can she actually continue working on this case?
Saga’s past catches up with her when her mother unexpectedly arrives, creating unforeseen consequences for Saga.
9.30pm Thursday, 14 January on SBS.
