There is no point comparing one work of art with another . I haven't seen The Bridge but I'm looking forward to it! This drama is fabulous on every level: it's a fully bilingual effort, which enables us to get to grips with some French . Even if you can't understand French, you've got subtitles (which we Scandi fans are used to anyway lol) but if you do have some french, this highlights the awkward interplay between Englsih and french detectives, a central tenet to the drama. The acting by Spillane and Poesy is awesome: they start as diametrically opposed characters in every sense: Poesy plays a very stiff, alienated character, whereas Spillane oozes friendliness. Later on in the series one begins to realise how much they actually have in common. This 'love 'plot is smouldering deep deep beneath the surface. The plot twists and turns as various suspects come and go. The filming of the torture and death of various victims holds no punches and it is often unsettling viewing but hey, why would you watch this if you weren't hooked on stupendous crime fiction?
on the tv we are within two episodes of the ending of the series and I look forward impatiently to each episode . I know that I would watch this again and again and Clemence Poesy is only one reason why.
