New series starts tonight bbc4. 9 pm. Thank goodness as there’s not much else to watch on a Saturday night.

The Bridge is fabulous! And the character of Saga is a real treat. I loved it when she was trying to make an effort to be sociable with her team (all men) so she joined them in the canteen with a cup of coffee and sat down and said
"So my period started this morning!"

Blank looks all round!!!!!

I think Wisting is on this evening on BBC4.

I can heartily recommend A Very Scandi Scandal if you have Netflix - it's about two 60-ish women who have been friends since childhood. One's a doctor, the other a teacher and they both find themselves in financial difficulty. The solution to their problem is to undertake a bank heist.

It's obviously nowhere near as dark as the dramas that we all enjoy, but the combination of humour (mostly age-related) and crime is very entertaining.

I've only watched season 1 - a friend tells me season 2 has recently become available.

I binged on 4 series of The Bridge earlier this year. The character of Saga Noren I thought was brilliant. She is autistic and doesn't know how to relate to people, always tells the truth and asks awkward questions about her colleagues love lives. If the BBC repeat it I can recommend it

I may re watch Trapped, seems fitting.

Oo. Greyzone ? Not heard of it. Off to google.

I like Scandi crime and read a fair bit of it too. Didn't see Greyzone. There is a Norwegian crime drama beginning soon on BBC 4. Wisting I think it's called.

I've just watched Greyzone.not bad. But not a patch on the earlier ones.
