There will be subtitles. Nearly all BBC programmes have them

I think our Danish/Swedish contributors have said before that the languages are similar. So they all understand each other?

My problem is- I won't be able to tell who is Swedish and who is Danish

Danish cops are Politi. Swedish are Polisen I think. But out of uniform????? I'll have to keep notes
BIB...why did I immediately think of major Blondie in the shower

Notepad at the ready!! Are you planning to do flow charts GrampsBK?

I assume you got bail minkski?
That is why I never answer the phone early on a Saturday morning: bail applications

I actually feel better than I ought to today, a bit tired that's all But it was fun meeting those Danish police last night: they wanted to know if we watched in Danish! I did forget to ask if we could work it out from the clues though But they did say it was very good

Seems I piqued the interest of my friend who shall also be watching it tonight

No flow charts, or coloured markers. But notepad? Most certainly.

MrsBK wants to watch with me tonight. Which will be fun. It's like having a kid in the car. Who's that? Where have I seen him/her before. etc etc.

PS
Looks like I'm stuck with Gramps from now on?

These may help

Mind you it may not help as far as the subtitles go. Using Mentalbaldo as an example, the subtitles always have him being called Inspector whereas his rank in the Polizia di Stato is actually Commissario

Thank you Verence.

Deja Vu or what?
That page will be one of my first ports of call if we ever get a programme from another country in the Euro-Crime slot.

I've said it before and I'll say it before, the various Euro-Crime have been educational as well as entertaining as we learn about the legal and political systems of the various countries

But sometime you hear his juniors calling him Dottore (Doctor). I know that in Italy anyone with a first degree can be called that but is it in this case a generic honorific similar to the British police calling their superior Guv'ner?

Yes, I've noticed Catarello always calls old Baldo "Dottore"

Laure Berthaud in Spiral is a Captain. But the subs always call her an Inspector.

Valentino Rossi is nicknamed The Doctor. He has a degree as well. Not sure if the two are connected though. Apparantly calling someone Doctor is a huge sign of respect. Does this fit in with the character and his subordinates?

Fan here as well. First saw him at Donington on a 125. You could tell straight away he was a class act.

Given that TV drama programmes should be entertaining, I'm hoping this won't be as depressing as some parts of previous Scandinavian contributions.
No wonder they have such high suicide rates in some countries.

I think that may just like a group of people nicknaming a member of their group "Professor" or "Prof" if they are seen to have more of an education than the rest.

A bit like Sergeant Major Williams in It Ain't Half Hot Mum calling Gunner Graham "Mr La Di Dah Gunner Graham"

(I realise referencing IAHHM does age me quite a lot!!)

Itís the drama that reflects the reality rather than eps of Wallander and The Killing making our European cousins top themselves! Still, youíve laid the foundations for a post-airing moan so......mission accomplished!

Itís a series where the central crime is people cut in half - You were expecting a comedy perhaps?

Perhaps Mentalbaldo would be more your speed - Sun, sand and skin?

He doesn't like Mentalbaldo either. Too light-hearted No pleasing him I'm afraid! Oh and it's subtitled so there'll be moaning about that too.

and on the subject of "Doctor", have you noticed how many times the deceased fathers of the poor Nigerian scammers all have that title?

Aren't a lot of them ex-Army Generals or Government ministers??

Although the one that fooled Olafur in Naeturvaktin was pretending to be a Prince

Err..
Who mentioned comedy?

Oh yes you did.

Anyway, why are you so concerned about what I think about a programme?

Makes no sense to me.

You're already moaning about someone else's opinion, or like some others, do you think that's your job?

Prince Benjamin.

Brings a grin to my face just typing it

Danish sounds much more guttural/throaty than Swedish - the Swedes seem to roll their 'r's - it's definitely not so much from the back of the throat.

Linguistic ignoramus on the forecourt remember TLP

But I'll try my best, thanks very much.

So the Danes are the growlers??? And the Swedes purr
