Bron | Broen
screenable online: 28 episodes
There are multiple remakes including The Bridge (US/Mexico) and The Tunnel (UK/France), but the original Scandinavian crime series Bron/Broen remains inimitable.
The body of a woman is found in the middle of the Øresund Bridge between Sweden and Denmark. Half the body belongs to a Swedish politician and the other half to a Danish prostitute. A bi-national team of inspectors is put together to solve the crime: laid-back Danish family man Martin, and Swedish single Saga who puts facts above empathy.. The killer is a “moral terrorist,” who lays out his agenda in messages addressed to the media and designed to show us how corrupt we have become. Indeed, the spectacular murders he stages actually do bring public opinion to his side... Martin and Saga begin to suspect that it could be a personal vendetta perpetrated by someone from their own ranks. Always one step ahead of the police, the killer becomes the object of a dramatic manhunt throughout the Øresund area.
