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?

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

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.....
