BBC 4s The Bridge another Scandinavian cop/murder series. This one set in Sweden and Denmark. First 2 parts off BBC HD. Let's hope they show the rest in HD, unlikely knowing the Beeb.My foreign language skills not improving.The cops must be well paid in Sweden as she drives around in a Porsche.
But it is an old one!
We watched it too. Not sure if we're enjoying it as much as 'Inspector Montalbano' which was being aired in this slot until a week ago..... But maybe we're just missing the Sicilian sunshine.

We tried Montalbano but couldn't get on with it somehow. We have enjoyed the previous 2 scandinavian series we've watched. The Killing & Those Who Kill but missed Borgen (think it was called that). Perhaps we prefer weirdish female cops.
And deadly for 12000 years is Carbon 14
That ITV thing about the Mississippi, and 7 Worlds Collide: 7 Years Apart.

The Rain, is it ever going to stop?
I enjoyed Those Who Kill, it's a shame they're not making any more.
I'm currently just over halfway through the 2nd The Killing box set, really enjoying it. Lots of twist and turns, but not as many as the first series (so far).
I think I know who's done it, but I'm bound to be wrong.

Only just got round to this.
Excellent Aussie film, great acting, good story, and doesn't disappoint at the end. 8/10
Both were excellent
Haywire is not bad. And if I'm ever strangled, I think I'd like it to be like that.
Homeland last episode with an open ending.
The Bridge- one very weird female Swedish detective but very enjoyable.
Watched Haywire on Saturday and yes, If I were to be strangled I could think of worse ways

Fringe season 4 last episode, roll on season 5.
BUT, I'm getting very hacked off by contemporary production design-style that depicts the late-60s and/or early-70s as being very bleak - the BBC's White Heat is another recent example
Not all interior decor was a sea of turgid brown and orange hues nor did everyone light their homes with 10-watt lightbulbs. And in the early-70s, London-based 'officer-class chaps' wouldn't have been seen dead in a brown suit/shoes - "Never brown in town!"
