Editorial Reviews

In Swedish and Danish with English Subtitles
A woman is found murdered in the middle of the Oresund Bridge, on the border between Sweden and Denmark. Police from both countries are called to the scene and what looks like one murder, turns out to be two. It's a spectacular double murder: the bodies have been brutally cut in half at the waist and put together to form a single corpse. It's also just the beginning of a wave of violence the likes of which no one has ever seen before. Both police forces find themselves in a race against the clock in a deadly showdown with a superior enemy, and no one will be the same when it's over.

Format: DVD
At the time of writing this review the product has yet to be released in United States, and my review is based on the airing of the series on BBC4 from Great Britain.
The Title of this latest offering from Scandinavia refers to Oresund Bridge, which connects Copenhagen with the southern Swedish city of Malmö. The opening sequence sees the `staging' of a female body on Oresund, where one half is literally within Swedish borders while the other lies within Danish borders.
Our two main protagonists in the Bridge Rohde (Danish Cop) and Norén (Swedish) team up against a self-righteous serial killer drawing attention to the ways in which the two countries' governments seem to neglect the poor and needy. He attaches notes to the corpses saying things such as: "Had there been no victims, you would have found no victims." A thoroughly engaging police drama and well worth a look. There are other side stories that seem to have no connection with the main theme, but as the series progresses we will see a convergence of plot threads.
To the main two protagonists then:
We have Norén Saga (female Swedish Police officer) when it comes to police procedures she is professional and very competent. As soon as it comes to interacting with other people, she's lost and lacks any social skills. There is a hysterical scene in which she tries to chat up a man in a bar, displaying a pulling technique that makes The Inbetweeners look polished by comparison. Although not directly implied it is clear she has a form of Asperger's.
While Martin Rohde (our laid-back Danish Police officer). He has a slightly alarming habit of massaging his groin - but has the excuse of having just undergone a vasectomy.

I saw the first four episodes of Bron on a plane and was instantly hooked. I ended up tracking down the DVD in the UK, and watching the whole thing obsessively. Great characters, beautifully atmospheric and clever in its social commentary on many levels including interesting contrasts between Sweden and Denmark. The characters are nuanced enough that you end up really getting to know them and miss them. If you liked The Killing or the original Wallander series you're sure to like this. I really wish we got to see more quality European television like this in the US, it makes me miss the BBC immensely.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This is a very fun dramatic series out of Scandanavia. 10 episodes of Swedish / Danish language crime fighting on 3 Blu-Rays. The Blu-Ray experience is a little lost on the series however. There picture is certainly high definitiion, and you've got the choice of about 8 different options for subtitles. The only "Frills" are some promo's for other series. No background on the series, no behind the scenes, outtakes, or anything to help one get immersed in the Broen experience. The show content is great, but features are what separate quality discs from the riffraff.

On a final note, and probably most important, when I purchased this Blu-Ray set the produce description noted that it was playable on North American region Blu-Ray players "region A." When I received the set not even thinking I put them in my player to get the magic started and nothing happened. Then I examined the box and say that it was in fact a "region b" coded series. I was very pissed, more so that I would have to delay my viewing experience, and then that I had to wait the additional time to purchase a region free player and wait for it to arrive. I tried modifying the Amazon listing, hopefully it still has my special "buyer beware."

The intriguing Scandinavian crime series "The Bridge" starts out with an absolutely killer premise and builds a complex multi-layered narrative that constantly surprises. In the initiating episode, a body is dumped (quite elaborately, I might add) on the bridge that connects Denmark with Sweden. One half of the body is on each side of the border. Cool, huh? Even more twisted, there are really two corpses that are pieced together for this rather macabre spectacle. One is a prominent figure in Swedish politics and the other is a long missing prostitute from Denmark. Just what is the killer trying to say? Are his ultimate motives political or are they personal? That's exactly what the lead investigators have to determine as they play an increasingly perplexing series of cat-and-mouse games with the person responsible. There seems to be a social statement at work (the inequality of the justice system, the apathy for the plight of the homeless and disconnected) but surely this stems from some sort of originating event that must be uncovered.

At this point, you might be saying "Wait, I think I've seen something quite like this already!" And, indeed, you might have. Season One of the original Scandinavian series aired in 2011 and was already adapted into an Americanized version for the FX network starring Diane Kruger and Damien Birchir in 2013. (A second season of this Swedish/Danish iteration also aired in its native lands in 2013, and I'm eagerly awaiting its availability). I actually watched the American version prior to going back to this one, and the two are structured very similarly.
