3.0 out of 5 stars good performances, shame about the plot !, 29 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Bridge: Series 1 [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
The Bridge begins well enough with a mystery, great main characters and a culture clash between Sweden and Denmark. However by episode 5 the crime has become so overburdened with significance that we are in the territory of a "state of the world" critique. Then in the latter episodes we are back to a fairly basic crime thriller/ revenge tragedy. There are so many brutal sadistic incidents that one obsessive psychopath would have been stretched far beyond his limits. The police forces of Denmark and Sweden would have had the CIA and MI5 breathing down their necks by the time factories were burning, in fact Dr Who might have been called to lend a hand !
It is a shame it gets so implausible as the acting is fine throughout and it is worth watching for the great performance of Sofia Helin alone, Saga is a great character and it would be good to see more of her, but sadly The Bridge is nowhere near as good as The Killing in terms of plot and emotional truth !

I disagree.

Also Saga as a character is the first time that someone high functioning on the autistic spectrum has been in the slightest bit investigated as a personality type in a TV drama

The Bridge, the Killing and Girl with the dragon tattoo, all brilliant - but for me the Bridge is by far the most original and a worthy follow up to it will be extremely difficult to achieve

Yes, the plot became ridiculously implausible by the end.
