The Bridge

Henrik Georgsson, Charlotte Sieling, & Lisa Siwe | 2011 | ★★★
When a serial killer, dubbed The Truth Terrorist (for his quasi-didactic approach to slaying), becomes active on both sides of The Øresund/Öresund Bridge, a gregarious Copenhagen detective with an eye for the ladies and his socially awkward Malmö equivalent head up the high profile investigation, in this grippingly unpredictable ten-part serial. Some of the plotting is perhaps a little on the silly side, but the winning performances, the surprisingly funny comic relief, and the serial's generally excellent craftsmanship make for recommended viewing.
