The 10 Best Crime Dramas This Week (Monday 3rd – Sunday 9th July)

Standard

Once again it’s as you were this week, with one notable addition. Yes, Fargo, Twin Peaks, Fearless, The Loch et al trundle on (although it should be noted that Fargo has now moved to 10.30pm), but there’s Danish crime drama in the shape of series two of Dicte (above), which I enjoyed very much during its first run. Enjoy!

1 Fargo *NEW UK PREMIERE EPISODE*
Ray and Nikki plot revenge against Yuri and Meemo, but are forced to use caution when they see them with their boss, while Emmit and Sy listen to Varga’s plan to expand Stussy Lots. Gloria and Winnie want to question Emmit, but Varga sits in on their meeting, so the two officers then head off to try to talk to Ray, who refuses to answer his door and then checks into a motel with Nikki.

    Paul, you man, you! Of course Berniesr’s comment was a reply to Vella Jones’. Any woman could’ve told you this *lol*. Sorry, could not resist that one. Please, do not get offended.

    Good morning! Oh dear, there were far too many conclusions by Mark to report as the total timespan of the seminars is close to 5 hrs. You’ll have to check them yourself to see which apply. Look for Tale of Two Brains or Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage on YouTube.
