    Thank you …..Thank you. At last an actual mention for Nordic Murders in your listing despite now being up to episode 5 of the second series. I really don’t think it at all bad as I commented last week. But still a mystery to me how no-one has ever mentioned it before. Mind it does take me a time to place everyone in each episode but I blame my age.
