Product Description

The second series of the Scandinavian crime drama following the joint efforts of Danish and Swedish police officers to solve murders that take place along the border of the two countries. In this series, 13 months since they last worked together, Swedish detective Saga Norén (Sofia Helin) and Danish detective Martin Rohde (Kim Bodnia) pair up again when a ship crashes into the Oresund Bridge. The vessel is empty except for five kidnap victims and when they die from pneumonic plague the case turns into a murder investigation. Saga and Martin learn that eco-terrorists are responsible for the incident and soon further attacks occur. Can the duo find the culprits before more victims are taken? Meanwhile, Martin has been trying to adjust to life after suffering the loss of a loved one but some devastating news from his wife motivates him to seek revenge...

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite a bridge too far 2 Feb 2014
By Antenna TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
In this darkest of Scandinavian noir detective thrillers, the Swedish autistic workaholic Saga joins forces once again with Danish Martin, the once easy-going philanderer now estranged from his partner Mette and traumatised by a ghastly personal tragedy. The complex crime of eco-terrorism which they are required to unravel turns out to be less gripping than the relationships between the main characters. Despite Saga's frequent resemblance to a robot, lack of empathy and wooden quoting from textbooks on how to behave, her acting towards the end is excellent in showing the dawning of emotion in her face as Martin forces her to confront the past events that have so damaged her psyche, and also as she has to deal with a final dilemma. In portraying a busy office where a disparate group of officers are thrown together, working under stress, there are also frequent touches of humour in what might otherwise be a very bleak and macabre film, with frequent scenes of speeded up grey clouds streaming frenetically over ugly grey concrete blocks.

The plot twists and the continual introduction of new, seemingly unconnected storylines for the watcher to work out while contending with subtitles made me wish I had noted key events at the end of each episode. The body count was so high, and the events at times so ludicrous, that I almost gave up watching. However, I was both rehooked and quite impressed by the final two episodes, with their pace and some real depth. The writer Hans Rosenfeldt has ensured the plot "adds up", which is often not the case in this kind of drama, plus he has left at least three loose ends to justify a third series.

Even if you have reservations, the dramatic sweep of the Øresund Bridge, never fails to impress in the opening shots. This has developed to be stronger and more "multi-layered" than Series 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars New "Bridge" better than frst! 23 Feb 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Only once in my life have I found a "sequel" to be superior to the origiinal! I much preferred the brooding GODFATHER 2 to the first--and now I'm astonished, amazed and enthrall by The Bridge 2, which miraculously surpasses the first. Now the first is right up there with the Classic Nordic Noir--THE KILLING 1-3, the MILLENIUM trilogy most importantly. But I was shattered by the fearless honesty and depth of the characters! The plot is probably better in #1, sensational as it was, but the plotting here is fine and absorbing. BUT the characters have drunk a Shakespearean potion that heightens their inner depths thrillingly. Saga is here an astounding presence--managing to convey a robotic concentration and intensity focused on the mystery at hand------but OH! the views of her inner soul & heart are yearningly aching and filled with wonder. Sofia Helin is the Cate Blanchett of Europe! And Kim
Bodnia gives a richly textured complex set of heartbreaks and hidden agony. The ending is apropriately an emotional volcano!
This is worthy of Strindberg, as it reveals the Scandinavian world, and its need to keep things secret, repressed, and avoided.
I thought it had to be disappointing after the wild thrill of #1. But the Wagnerian brooding of THE BRIDGE 2 tops the Verdian melodramatic "rushes" of BRIDGE 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars FULL CONCENTRATION AMPLY REWARDED 26 April 2014
By Mr. D. L. Rees TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
That bridge is much in evidence as Swedish and Danish police combine to combat the threat posed by eco-terrorists. After a year Saga is reunited with Martin, he still traumatized by personal tragedy. Can working with Saga provide the therapy he needs?

Ten episodes of around fifty minutes. No extras. Close attention is required to keep up with all the twists and turns - some developments such a shock, it becomes impossible to predict the outcome. (Well done, anybody who did!)

As before, great talents have converged for a series that grips all the way through. Atmospheric photography instantly sets the mood. Sofia Helin and Kim Bodnia head the impressive cast, all concerned totally convincing. Helin as Saga is superb - the character blinkered, humourless, totally lacking in people skills, but brilliant at her job and curiously appealing. Bodnia as Martin is most moving, he clearly teetering on a breakdown, unable to get out of his head the man who killed his son. Both are dedicated to their work, but in every other way could scarcely be more different. Salute here one of television's most unlikely partnerships.

A viewing treat - bleak, brooding, memorable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, gripping drama 5 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Think that I may have missed the second series on the TV here in Australia, or maybe it hasn't been shown yet. Bought the DVD to ensure that we saw the next one. Have only watched 5 episodes, but it is great drama, and we are really having to control ourselves in not watching the whole series in one go. Very interesting story line about extreme eco activists, and trying to work out what is happening and how characters fit into the plot, makes gripping viewing. This series seems to explore Saga's character a bit more, and is absolutely hilarious. Sofia Helin is fantastic at playing the role and you really feel her personality defects. Martin's character is very dark because of the events of the last series, and this is also being explored and will be very interesting as to what happens towards the end. The Danish/Swedish dramas are great viewing and so gripping that you don't notice that you are reading subtitles. Fantastic to have the extra titles to choose from.
