Anyone for Brogen?
Not sure its gonna work. There is a real taste for crime, really. Put in the politics, just don't forget to bring a corpse.

I think the kidnap/blowing himself up was to put all the guilty on himself, the guilty go free, allowing them to carry further naughty ops, killing more extremists. He didn't blow himself in a shaopping mall, it was an old military site where and no one else died
The putting-all-the-guilt-on-himself bit sounds plausible, but don't forget he almost blew up two police officers and Raben's wife in the process. Can't remember the details of some of the other bits that seemed a bit dubious, gonna have to tease them out of the recesses of my brain.

The way I recall he let Raben's wife go w/ease then displayed the explosives allowing both Lund and Srange enough time to run off.

Any reports on Borgen? I might start watching this on iPlayer

V much liked episode 1, family dynamic excellently done. Not sure I have the attention for something politics based though. Both Lund's partners from Killing 1 & 2 are in this btw.

Yes, (Killing Spoiler!) I kept expecting Strange actor to go on a murder spree. Not sure the politics will be enough for me either. I do really like some of the characters though. The spin doctor guy looks to be a good baddie.

they've done ok, especially episode 4 where they moved beyond the coalition-building back and forth. i liked the greenland montage, for instance.

I've just finished the first episode of Bron/Broen or just 'Bridge'. It's got that Killing gloomy feel. Anticipating watching the second one. I did love Borgen in the end. I liked how she transitioned from unlikely politician to, lets just say 'learning on the job'. There should be a collective scandinavian tv thread!

I really enjoyed the first two episodes of Bridge, partly because it uses the same central plot device as Bon Cop, Bad Cop.
It has the same kind of Northern European industrial noir feeling as The Killing but there's lots of comedy there as well.

anyone watching the third series? why does no-one finish their sentences on this show?
― tpp, Thursday, 13 December 2012 14:37 (6 months ago) Permalink
Yes. Because that's standard realism-tool. No one finishes their sentences in

We don't have time for that now - we have to bring the entire department where the killer isn't

I watched it, but I still haven't seen the final two episodes. How far are they in UK?

i still love lund but the plot has gotten tiresome esp. the political aspect
― tpp, Thursday, 13 December 2012 22:47 (6 months ago) Permalink
Yeah the problem w/this last series is the whole thing being so tied up with the PM's office. Additonally never quite believing the outcome of the kidnap would've determined the outcome of the elections, or that the opposition would use the kidnapping to score political points as that has a danger of backfiring.
Then you have the ending...again, would Lund step outside the law here? Other possible endings on a postcard please.
Go to admire the craft to keep you watching.

On episode 12 season 1. It's gripping as hell, though the 'He did it! Oh wait he didn't' structure could wear thin soon.
Danes seem to like smoking indoors a lot don't they?

Season 1 > Season 2 > Season 3. Still, this one was was good though. With hunky Borch showing his love and Mark making amends, with his newborn it was only going one way for Lund.....

Loving the 1st season. Is it bad I watched 14 episodes in a day. I tried to stop, but I just had to know what happened next.
Only passing out from tiredness stopped me. I intend to finish the last 6 tonight. I have seasons 2 & 3 ready, but I will leave it at least a week before starting them.
I haven't read the thread as I don't want to know, but I think I have an idea who I want it to be/who it is...

it's so good. just finished the second series myself. the first series was excellent, but i think i enjoyed the second even more. making it 10 episodes instead of 20 was the right choice, it was a lot tighter with fewer loose ends/red herrings. i'm going to take some time before watching the third series.
currently watching the sort-of knockoff series broen/bron. the plot and characters are a bit more csi and less bleakly realistic, but it's good fun and having the action switch between malmø and copenhagen is a genius move.

i prefered Broen / Bron (The Bridge) purely because of the red herring thing in the killing.
The french thing, Spiral, also well worth a watch (4 series now)
