Forbrydelsen: Thank You!

Forbrydelsen is a lesson in the power of word of mouth.

That series aired in 2007. I didn’t hear about it until just last year. Buzz that stayed alive for four years!

Thanks to everyone who ignored the law and shared the first season with subtitles.

And thanks to everyone who ignored the law and shared the second season.

And thanks to broadcaster DR-1 for coming to its senses and dropping the geo-restricting of its weekly post-broadcast stream. You made a lot of people happy. And I hope it pays off for you in future profits.

Thanks to everyone involved in all the productions, from creator Søren Sveistrup, his stable of writers and directors and actors, to Sofie Gråbøl for her great, compelling, magnetic portrayal of Lund.

Thanks to IceHunter and samtasam and their friends for the English subtitles of the third series. Not to sound like an ingrate, but we’re all still waiting for episodes 9 and 10.

And thanks to all the readers who came here to read about Forbydelsen, discuss the series, and provide links to subtitles.

Even though it’s finished in Denmark, I can still look forward to few more weeks of Frans Bak’s “Montage” music, via BBC Four. Thanks to him too.
