The Bridge

Series 2 - Episode 10

Radio Times
Review by:
Alison Graham

The Bridge hits a new beat entirely during these final, thrilling episodes as the hunt for a serial killer turns into a Jason Bourne-type race against time to prevent a catastrophe. The final instalment will leave you wrung out and in despair as detectives Saga and Martin (Sofia Helin and Kim Bodnia) hurtle towards a series of disasters that have huge ramifications for their friendship.

So we take a melancholy last trip across the Oresund Bridge with the pair, who are drowning in their own little wells of loneliness. Martin tries to make his relationship with his long-suffering wife Mette work, while Saga can’t get used to sharing her life with her sweet and forbearing boyfriend, Jakob. “You can have your own room too,” she tells him, helpfully, as she tries to make sense of what “living together” actually means.

It’s a deeply satisfying ending, full of nuance and a sadness that you’ll find hard to shake off.
