REVIEW: Killing Eve (S1 E1/8)

Imagine a world so mad, that Russian assassins could poison their targets in broad daylight, and despite being captured on CCTV, then appear on television to claim that they were innocent tourists. The tragi-comedy-drama of Salisbury puts the seeming insanity of Killing Eve in context; this is indeed the world in which we are living,…

Hans Rosenfeldt: Kim Bodnia said no to series four Bridge return

We often wondered if Kim Bodnia’s Martin Rohde would make a dramatic return for the fourth and final installment of The Bridge.

Hans Rosenfeldt: The Bridge’s fourth season will be its last

Last month we carried a story that quoted Hans Rosenfeldt, saying that a fourth series of The Bridge would indeed be forthcoming (see that story here).

Last year the Nordicana festival played host to stars from Borgen, The Killing and Sofia Helin and Kim Bodnia from The Bridge, then just before the series two finale was due to be screened on BBC4. There were also screenings from Scandinavian films and TV shows. It was a Scandi lover’s wet dream and this year,…

Behind The Scenes Video of The Bridge II

It goes without saying that we miss The Bridge II. We miss Martin and Saga, we miss the language and we miss the story, which this series was a corker. The good news is that The Bridge will be back for a third and final series next year, but in the meantime here’s a little…
