The Bridge: Series 1

The latest hit Scandinavian crime series makes a killing on its Blu-ray debut

Swedish and Danish cops are forced into working together when a woman's bisected body is found in the middle of a busy bridge linking the two countries. What follows are ten episodes of high-quality Nordic noir, made even more compelling by Sofia Helin’s mesmerising turn as the socially-awkward detective Saga Norén. Roll on series two...

Arrow’s two-disc Blu-ray is sadly devoid of extras, but compensates somewhat with impressively textured AVC 1.78:1 1080i visuals that revel in the desaturated palette and registers as a marked improvement on the UK TV broadcast of the series. The atmospheric LPCM 2.0 audio is joined by forced English subtitles.
