Bron / Broen - The Bridge (Scandinavian TV series) - Netflix
The Bridge (Danish: Broen; Swedish: Bron) is a Scandinavian noir crime television series created and written by Hans Rosenfeldt. A joint creative and financed production between Sweden's Sveriges Television and Denmark's DR, it has been shown in more than 100 countries. The first series begins with the discovery of a dead body exactly on the centre of the Øresund Bridge, which links Malmö with Copenhagen, necessitating a joint investigation. Sofia Helin, as the Swedish police detective Saga Norén, stars in all four series. In the first and second, her Danish counterpart, Martin Rohde, is played by Kim Bodnia, and in the third and fourth Thure Lindhardt plays Henrik Sabroe. The first series was broadcast on the Swedish SVT1 and Danish DR1 during the autumn of 2011, and on the United Kingdom's BBC Four the following spring. The second series aired in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland during the autumn of 2013, and in the UK in early 2014. The third series was broadcast in Denmark, Sweden and Finland during the autumn of 2015 and in the UK in November 2015. The fourth series premiered on 1 January 2018 in the Nordic countries and was broadcast on BBC Two in the UK from 11 May 2018 with these final eight episodes shown over eight weeks rather than doubled-up in the BBC4 tradition.
