The nights are drawing in, the days are getting chillier and Saturday nights are Scandi nights again. New Swedish drama Beck is kicking off tonight on BBC4. The drama, which consists of feature-length adaptations of Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo's classic 1960s detective novels, is gripping, intruiging and suitably gloomy.


And if it's given you a taste for more Scandi gems, you're in luck. Pop on that atmospheric mood lighting and dig out your woollen jumpers, here's how you can get your fix on demand...
