So you thought the opening episodes of the new series were a bit draggy and talky? I know you did and you were right. But after those two hours of sometimes painfully obscure exposition and establishment,
suddenly lifts off to become a ricocheting, buzzing thriller.
The plot at last starts to pulse with energy as Sarah Lund and her hunky new sidekick Strange (nice sexual tension, by the way) start to fathom why lawyer Anne Dragsholm and an ex-soldier were both tortured and executed.
As they — and we — feel our way through the murk, everything becomes drenched in urgent, claustrophobic menace; the killer is ruthless and on a mission. He/she will not stop. Admittedly, there’s still a bit too much bickering between politicos in nondescript government back rooms. But even here the outline of a potentially explosive conspiracy is beginning to take shape.
Still, it’s the action that grabs, as Lund and Strange are caught in the wilderness. And they are not alone.
Lund and Strange think the killer they are investigating has claimed a third victim when another body is found - but Special Branch believes the detectives are targeting the wrong suspect. Meanwhile, an under-pressure Buch discovers some surprising secrets about his predecessor. Danish crime thriller, starring Sofie Grabol.
