I will be watching on BBC HD. Does that mean I'm not allowed in this thread?

I'm really looking forward to this! I need another Euro crime drama to get my teeth into after The Killing and Spiral. I'm determined to keep up with the BBC4 pace.

Cheers D. That's a relief. It was the exclamation mark in the thread title that worried me. Sounds very stern

In honour of the Danish/Swedish coproduction it will Tuborg and Baltic Herring(well Herring- they may have been in the Baltic at some time in their lives- so near enough).

Did think about trying to get some Surströmming. But thought better after watching this

Episode 1 is repeated on BBC4 the following Monday. And episode 2 is repeated the day after that- Tuesday. Perhaps BBC have taken note of people who find two back to back eps a little too much?

Same here! I'm determined to keep up with the thread this time around. It'll be great to talk about the show with others and join in the discussion.

Looking forward to The Bridge as well. Sounds promising.

I suspect a few fans already know this, but I see a certain Ms Grabøl will be appearing in the next AMC series of The Killing, but not as a cop.

oops I didn't realise BBC4 were showing the repeat eps on different nights. Thanks BK.

The Daily Heil are quick off the mark...

The preview on BBC Radio Front Row last night was very positive, glad to hear of separate repeats, sometimes 2 hours is 1 too many!

Extremely Blonde ???? Scrumptious.

PS
Alternate nights for the repeats is a first???

Normally the DM has the same effect on me as lollypops have on you D. But I summoned up the courage and clicked anyway

Keep trying to find a start date for that on Ch4- nothing so far. Maybe we will get a promo during Homeland this weekend? US Pace is getting very tempting.

Yep, I'm looking forward to seeing what's in those skin-tight leather trousers already.

I don't do newspapers but it's interesting I couldn't find anything in the DM online about TK but the ice has definately melted since then. Eurodrama is definately here to stay if the coverage in all media continues apace. It should put more bums on seats infront of the tv to watch this.

Yep. The Mail used to be very frosty when it came to the Beeb buying in foreign dramas. Perhaps their critic is just glad to watch some class now and again. Make a change from ITV I suppose?

PS
OT but the Swedish Culture Minister is under pressure to resign. Seems her involvement in this didn't goes as well as planned:-

Hi BK.

I've just seen that AMC are up to ep 5 on series 2, so I suspect it won't hit Channel 4 screens for some months yet. I'm not in any rush to watch it as I didn't take to the AMC s1 at all. Meanwhile there's the excellent Homeland to get stuck into.

For the record Vagn appears in Epsiode 2 and Svartman in Episodes 7 and 8

As for Season 2 of the US Killing according to next week's Radio Times it will start the week after next

Speaking of the Killing, Ann Eleonora Jørgensen aka Pernille Birk Larsen will be appearing in this British/French/Polish co-production on BBC4
