So, after three weeks of a fixture per day we finally came to the end of the road in the Euro 2016 Of Crime Drama yesterday. The final saw Sweden’s The Bridge take on Denmark’s The Killing, those titans of Scandinavian crime drama, and, as predicted, the two locked horns in an epic contest. Click over the jump to see who was victorious.
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?
We’re enjoying Danish drama Dicte over on More4 at the moment, and if The Killing hadn’t happened Dicte surely would have been Denmark’s representative in this tournament. Alas, it’s the wily old favourite, The Killing, that’s here and currently doing very well. It has already qualified for the quarter-final, but will be wanting to put on a show for its fans in its final group game, against winless Falcón.
After yesterday’s win for England’s Happy Valley over Italy’s Inspector Montalbano, it’s back to Group D today and an opportunity to check back in with one of the tournament favourites, The Killing. Denmark’s representative takes on The Lens, from the Czech Republic, who also won its first game. Let’s face it – there’s only going to be one winner here. Or will there?
We’ve seen games in groups A, B and C so far in this tournament and it’s gone to form – all three seeded teams (Spiral, The Bridge and Happy Valley) have put points on the board. Now it’s time for the final seeded team to take the field – Denmark’s The Killing. A veteran, yes, but also one of the favourites in the competition. It’s playing a rank outsider in the first game from Group D, too – Switzerland’s 10.
