This review is from: The Bridge - Series 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
It had to happen, the Swedes and the Danes combine to give us a Wallander/Killing joint front that blows contemporary British thrillers out of the water. I wasn't sure about this to start, I thought the idea too convoluted and contrived but Saga and Martin wore me down. Saga's character is the more challenging for a fiction writer/actor to get right but Sofua Helin does a great job. As anti-heroes go they are both brilliantly portrayed. Martin Is a more traditional flawed detective but this is notched up a bit more by exposing his infidelity and moral uncertainty to great effect. The plot leaves you guessing pretty much up to the last couple of episodes. The Danes and Swedes must produce some dross television the same as the rest of us but if they keep coming out with dramas equal in quality to Wallander, The Killing, Borgen and The Bridge then I'll remain a fan.
