We finally get to the final of the Euro 2016 Of Crime Drama today after three weeks of highly competitive tournament play and some stunningly close matches. After 42 fixtures comprising four teams of four, the quarter-finals and the semi-finals it’s time for the final match to decide who wins the coveted trophy and wouldn’t you know it, it features two Scandinavian teams.
It’s almost the end of the Euro 2016 Of Crime Drama, and it’s time, today, for the second semi-final, which sees England’s Happy Valley (who saw off Iceland’s Trapped in an epic quarter-final) take on Denmark’s The Killing. It’s too close to call, so get voting!
We’re onto the fourth and final quarter-final today, which sees Denmark’s The Killing (which breezed through the group stages) take on Scotland’s Shetland. Shetland edged out Wales’ Hinterland for a place in the quarters, and now it has to step up its game even further to try and dislodge one of the favourites. Can it cause on upset?
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…
Some seasoned pundits are calling Group A the ‘group of death’ and we can see why – Spiral, The Fall, Trapped and Mammon are all fighting for two places in the quarter-finals. We head back to this group today to check in with one of the tournament favourites, Spiral, who are unbeaten at the moment.
You’ll be very glad to know that we’re half-way through the group stages of the inaugural Euro 2016 Of Crime Drama. There are ‘only’ 12 more fixtures in these group phases (I can almost hear the exhales of relief across the blogosphere), so now we start the descent by going back to Group A to see another strong team in action – Northern Ireland’s The Fall – who we haven;t seen since the opening day of the tournament.
