The Bridge


I’ve just now got done watching all ten episodes of the first series. The original Danish/Swedish co-production available on Hulu.

Saga is a very strange woman and it really stretches a viewer’s credibility to believe that anyone like her could ever be employed by a police department — even in somewhat “liberal” Sweden.

The first five episodes annoyed the hell out of me. But then it grabbed me.

I had to notice that this was the same thing that happened to me with the original Forbrydelsen.





Saga is a cross between Sherlock Holmes and Spock.

I recommend this series.

And I really want to see the second one.

  1. Many commentators branded her as on the autistic spectrum. However the show never suggested as much. The second series delves into her past a bit more, though I won’t spoil it for you. Third is due next year.

    You’ll love Season 2!
