Sofia Helin retires from The Bridge… with a hammock

Standard

Our friends in Europe are mere hours away from series four of The Bridge (while us chumps in the UK still await confirmation of the transmission date on BBC Two). We knew that this was going to be the very last run of this outstanding Swedish series, but it still feels funny to see its star, Sofia Helin, talk about the show in the past tense. And she has been talking about it. Continue reading

Hans Rosenfeldt: The Bridge IV inspired by refugee crisis

Standard

The brilliant Hans Rosenfeldt, the man behind The Bridge, always talks of the ‘second story’ when answering questions about the differences between Scandinavian crime dramas and those from, say, the UK or the US. The ‘second story’ refers that strong socio-political context that fires much of the best output from the region. Now, with the premiere of series four mere days away for our friends on mainland Europe (before you ask, incredibly there’s still no word as to when it’ll appear in the UK), Rosenfeldt has spoken about the inspiration for this fourth and final series. Continue reading

Standard

We’re all counting down the days until series four of The Bridge hits our screens, but there was one question that was lingering: would the series be broadcast in line with the rest of Europe on 1st January, and, with series six of Spiral waiting in the wings, which one would come first on BBC Four?

Plotlines revealed for series four of The Bridge

Standard

Even though we’re still a few months away from the end of 2017 and the start of 2018, we’re already counting down the days until the fourth and final series of The Bridge appears on our screen. We know bits and pieces about it thanks to a brilliant trailer we showed a few months ago, but know more. A lot, lot more. Beware: the details we’re going to publish after the jump contain a good amount of detail. Continue reading

The first series four trailer for The Bridge hits internet

Standard

Despite the sheer weight of new crime drama this year, there’s only one series we’ve got our eyes on. (Actually, that’s not entirely true, we have our eyes on series six of Spiral, a couple of things on Netflix, the Williams brothers’ Rellik, and The Deuce on HBO/Sky Atlantic). But for dramatic effect, let’s just assume that we have indeed got our eyes on one particular series – the fourth instalment of The Bridge. Or Bron, or Broen, depending on where you come from. There is excitement in the air because the first proper trailer has been released. Ch-ch-ch-check it out! Continue reading
