THE BRIDGE SEASON 3, director, Henrik Georgsson/Arrow Nordic Noir Blu-ray In many ways, socially challenged Detective Saga Norén’s difficult interaction with other people is even more interesting than the crimes she investigates. At the start of the much-anticipated Season Three, with ex-partner Martin Rohde in prison, Saga is tested both in professional and personal senses, with a new partner Henrik Saboe (played by Thure Lindhart) who has considerable problems of his own. And the crimes she encounters here are even more gruesome than before. The British taste for dramatised Scandinavian crime was piqued by The Killing, and, to a large degree, the momentum of this UK enthusiasm was maintained with this later cult series. The Bridge acquired a dedicated following, not least for its infuriating but likable sociopathic heroine. No spoilers here, of course – suffice to say, writer Hans Rosenfeldt (himself a respected novelist) has found new ways to test Saga – and provides a satisfying, surprising third season.
