So here we go then: after what has seemed liked 700 fixtures, we finally get to the knock-out stage of the first ever Euro 2016 of crime drama. It features the winner of Grou A (France’s Spiral) and the runner-up in Group C (Italy’s Inspector Montalbano). It’s the business end of the tournament, so let’s get to it!
We’re nearing the end of the group stages of the Euro 2016 Of Crime Drama, and there are still places in the quarter-final to play for. In Group C, Inspector Montalbano of Italy must beat Ireland’s Love/Hate to beat out Belgium’s Salamander. It’s a big one to end on in Group C…
It’s the final game in Group B today, and it features Wales’ representatives Hinterland, who have had a disappointing tournament, it has to be said, beaten to the second qualifying spot in the group by Scotland’s Shetland. Still, there’s pride at stake here as they take on the Germans, Cenk Batu, who remain winless.
We’re starting the last round of group matches today (hurrah!) and to kick off there’s a huge game in Group A, which will decide who goes into the quarter-finals. Spiral has already booked its place, but who will come second? It’s down to Iceland’s Trapped and Northern Ireland’s The Fall. Two great shows and two great shows who have won one, and lost one. So who’s it going to be? Iceland or Northern Ireland? Trapped or The Fall? Andri or Stella?
We’re enjoying Danish drama Dicte over on More4 at the moment, and if The Killing hadn’t happened Dicte surely would have been Denmark’s representative in this tournament. Alas, it’s the wily old favourite, The Killing, that’s here and currently doing very well. It has already qualified for the quarter-final, but will be wanting to put on a show for its fans in its final group game, against winless Falcón.
We’re back to Group C in the Euro 2016 Of Crime Drama, and even though the England football team went out of the tournament last night, their crime drama counterparts are still going strong and look likely to progress to the quarter-finals. One more win and Happy Valley is in!
So we trundle on in the Euro 2016 Of Crime Drama, and yesterday Spiral eased through a tough group top of the table and unbeaten. Now we move onto Group B, where there’s a tasty fixture in the offing: Sweden’s The Bridge takes on Scotland’s Shetland. Could there be the tournament’s first big upset on the cards?
