The Bridge

Confirmed for BBC Two at 9pm to 10pm on 11 May

Ep 1/8

Friday 11 May



Sofia Helin and Thure Lindhardt reprise their roles as Saga Norén and Henrik Sabroe in the concluding installment of the smash hit Scandinavian crime drama, this time airing on BBC Two.

Almost two years after we last saw Saga and Henrik a woman is found brutally murdered on Pepparholm island, at the base of the bridge. It transpires that she is Margrethe Thormod, General Director of the Migration Agency in Copenhagen and the killers motive may lie in a recent and highly publicised deportation scandal that affected Margrethe personally.

With Saga incarcerated in the women’s prison in Ystad, convicted of murdering her mother, Henrik is forced to investigate the macabre murder with his new abrasive Danish colleague, Jonas Mandrup (Mikael Birkkjǣr) but he misses Saga terribly. Knowing that she is having a hard time in prison he visits as often as she will let him and wants her to help him with the new case, but Saga points to the fact that she isn’t a police officer anymore.
