As readers will know, we like to keep up with what’s happening with our Scandinavian and Nordic friends across the water, and yesterday Danish broadcaster DR announced two new crime dramas that will air this autumn and winter in its flagship Sunday-night, 8pm slot.
First up is series two of Mord Uden Grænser (Murder Without Borders), in which mass murder has been committed at a bed and breakfast hotel in Marskgården in Sønderjylland, a refuge for refugees – all indicating a terrorist attack.
Series one featured the likes of Scandi and European crime drama favourites like Lars Mikkelsen, Filip Peeters and Ida Engvoll, but in series two Marie Bach Hansen stars in the eight-part drama with Troels Lyby, Waage Sandø, Josephine Park, Anders Juul, Esben Dalgaard and Kristian Halken. Murder Without Borders will debut in Denmark on 19th August.
Finally, and of interest to UK viewers (series one and two were broadcast by BBC Four) series three of Bedrag (Follow The Money) is also mooted to be coming back, albeit in 2019. Lead characters Nicky and Alf (played by Esben Smed Jensen and Thomas Hwan) are joined by a new female character played by Maria Rich. Series three of Follow The Money is set to debut 2019, although some will be streamed on the channel’s VOD service, DRTV.
More news when we get it.
