is that because it wasnt "below the surface" (its a ferry this time right?)? or is it just a rehash of the first one without really breaking new ground?

btw - has the film Dronningen been released yet that you recommend previously, and if it has is it any good?
To be fair to the makers, am not a boat person so it would have taken a lot.

Completely forgotten about Dronningen. Will have to look it up.
Is it another case of guess who dies first? I think I got that wrong in the first series. 😁
🙂 Something like that.

I might not be paying attention, but in “Below the Surface2” the terrorists seem indestructible as one got hit with a massive axe down in the hold and another got whacked with a fire extinguisher by June but they were all still up and running later.
Also where did they get all the explosives and vest to booby trap the hostages ?
They might also have tied up June in the fridge.
Anyone watching it still ?
 
I see Sky are doing a remake of Valkyrien called Temple. Starts on 13th September on Sky 1.

I hope its better than their remake of The Bridge.

Very good - started off and I thought it was just following the usual cliches but it has been really good with the twists. Looking forward to watching 3 and 4 tonight.

any old good ones that maybe on the bbc iplayer ?
started to watch darkness: those who kill but was finding it all a bit predictable (just copying previous formats)

I am in the middle of watching "The Bridge" and it's great. Saga Noren is a fabulous character (and a proper milf) whose Aspergers makes her doubly interesting in her interactions with other people.

Sadly I was unable to find it on Netflix or Iplayer so had to "obtain" it by nefarious means.

Well worth watching if you can get it.

Not sure there's much on iplayer. I can highly recommend Rita on Netflix (not so much noir but very good) and I think Forbrydelsen, if you haven't seen it is on Amazon Prime along with Borgen, The Bridge and of course the original Wallanders.

i hope its better than Valkyrien, that series didnt work for me... seem to remember that it was good to start off with as the premise was interesting but then as the series went on (was there more than one series?) it just didnt seem to go anywhere, literally.

i spotted a couple of danish ones on the channel 4 walter presents area of their streaming service while looking for Deutschland 86...
