A body, severed in half, is found meticulously placed on the border between Denmark and Sweeden, halfway across the Oresund Bridge. Half of the body belongs to a female Swedish politician, the other a danish prostitute.
The murders bring together two detectives from both countries, Saga Noren from Sweden and Martin Rohde from Denmark. The Series juxtaposes the cross border, cultural, and personal tensions of the detectives who must work with each other, with the following the thrilling and mysterious investigation into this most gruesome murder.

If you enjoy police dramas this is for you. However you do need to read the sub titles but after a while it becomes normal.
Although I had already enjoyed Series One of The Bridge on BBC4, the gripping drama of Series Two made me want to re savour Series One again. It was well worth doing as there were nuances I had missed on the earlier broadcast. This show is fantastic. Great characters, subtle twists of plot and nail biting tension. This Series One is probably better than Two. The characters of Saga and Martin are developed in a toughly sensitive way and their "love" for each other is superbly developed. Wickipadia describes Saga as having Aspsrgers. What she has is a complex and subtle character, engaging in her directness and movingly lonely. Martin is her perfect foil. I watched all ten episodes in three sessions. It's like a good bok. You cannot put it down. Only downside is the low colour saturation. I guess it's deliberately intended to underscore the darkness of the story line. You need to view it in low light to really enjoy it fully . The subtitles are good and keep up with the verbals and not at all distracting. Those of you from the North East will pick up a number of dialect words- like yem for home. Buy it and look forward to Series 3.
Really good Swedish/Danish crime serial. Good plot, good characters including Swedens's finest detective (despite her slight Aspergers problem, which leads to some hilarious dialogue). Stylish and imaginative.
