Review: Jordskott (S2 E1/8), Thursday 19th October, ITV Encore

NB: SPOILERS INSIDE So Jordskott’s back, then. Henrik Björn’s Nordic Noir with a supernatural twist was one of the most read-about shows on this site during its first run, which was surprising to me – even though it sometimes looked and felt like a Nordic Noir (you can discuss what makes a Nordic Noir, aside…

ITV confirms transmission date for Jordskott II

I was asked to keep schtum about the return of series two of bonkers Swedish crime drama, Jordskott, by ITV when I was putting together our big autumn preview, because the network hadn’t fully dotted the i’s and crossed the t’s. But now the network has announced when the eight-part series coming back, and it’s…

SVT releases trailer for series two of Jordskott

Well, they come like buses. You don’t hear from any Scandinavian favourites for a while and then two come along in the same day. Earlier, there was The Bridge’s series four trailer earlier today, and now it’s Jordskott’s turn. The series, starring Moa Gammel, is back for its second run later this year, and now there’s…

Series two of Jordskott to premiere in Sweden in October

As long-time readers of the site will know, I was a fan of series one of Swedish environmental (or just mental) procedural, Jordskott, when it first hit UK screen in 2015. We’ve known for a while that series two is on its way and that filming had taken place earlier this year. Now we know…

SVT confirms second series of Jordskott; releases trailer

Although Swedish series Jordskott was broadcast here in the UK on ITV Encore, it did fantastically well internationally, and was sold and played out in 50 countries. It was an insane, bonkers series that told the story of Detective Inspector Eva Thörnblad (Moa Gammel), who returns to Silver Height seven years after her daughter Josefine disappeared…

Review: Jordskott (S1 E8/10), Wednesday 29th July, ITV Encore

If episode seven was anything to go by, we’re very definitely into the home straight of this strange, ridiculous, brilliant and addictive Swedish thriller. If that episode had more big reveals than you could shake a bottle of Essence Of Forest at, episode eight reverted back to something slightly less manic – it was a nice mix of simmering…

Review: Jordskott (S1 E3/10), Wednesday 24th June, ITV Encore

So we’re two episodes into what could have been the next great Scandinavian crime drama, but instead we’re teetering on the edge of the supernatural genre, with plant-based humans with roots for fingers creeping around the place. For police investigator Eva Thörnblad, who has returned to her hometown not only to deal with her father’s…

Review: Jordskott (S1 E1/10), Wednesday 10th June, ITV Encore

As we all know, anyone who mentions the words ‘Scandinavian’ and ‘drama’ is guaranteed to cause much frothing at the mouth. The successes of crime dramas The Killing and The Bridge, as well as political drama Borgen and the recent period war opus, 1864, means that anything remotely connected with Sweden, Norway, Denmark and, to…
