The podcast that I’m working on has now released three episodes. A Stab In The Dark, which features award-winning crime writer, Mark Billingham, as host, has welcomed in Ian Rankin, and Belinda Bauer and Sarah Hilary so far. This week’s third episode – released yesterday – features multi-award-winning crime writer Laura Lippman, creator of The Wire, David Simon, and multi-award-winning crime writer, Megan Abbott. Full details after the jump.
Sean Bean has been having a good run of it lately. Not only is he in the forthcoming second series of ITV Encore’s The Frankenstein Chronicles, he can currently be seen doing good work in BBC One’s Broken. Now news reaches us that Bean has signed on to play a cop in a new US series, produced by Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson and to be shown on Sony affiliate, Crackle.
Well, this summer isn’t going to be a quiet one. Aside from contuing series Twin Peaks and Fargo, we have a new ITV series, from the creator of Homeland and starring Helen McCrory, called Fearless, a new Brazilian serial killer drama, Merciless, and a flashy new crime drama set on the French Riviera called, um, Riviera (pictured). It’s all go! Enjoy.
Here we go, then: another week with Fargo and Twin Peaks (which is something I’dnever thought I’d be writing five years ago). Elsewhere this week, there’s ITV’s new six-parter, The Loch, and Paula ends its run. Oh, and I’ve included something I forgot to put in last week – US series, Shots Fired on FOX UK. Enjoy!
Lots of things happening this week. Namely Twin Peaks, my own personal excitement-stoker. I just hope it’s good. Elsewhere, there’s a new revenge thriller on BBC2 (Paula), and a few series finales: Grantchester, Hinterland, Grantchester and Elementary. Enjoy!
We’re still reeling from the apparent death of Hildur, but perhaps the saddest part of the tragedy is that no-one has yet realised that she’s gone – having argued with Eric, she had effectively cut herself off from the community, and now if Fortitude can survive, it will have to do so without her.
Your correspondent in Oslo woke up to bright, blue and sunny skies, ever-so-slightly hungover after and evening of good fine and wine, but eager to get back to the city’s fourth annual Krimfestivalen. There’s another full day of programming here at the Cappellen Damm publishing house, again mostly featuring Norwegian and Danish-speaking panels, but there are some English-language sessions sprinkled throughout.
