We have been watching Beck. A Scandinavian Detective/Crime series. First series started back in the nineties which is a little dated but gets better. I think there are 6 series.

Brilliant series. 7th season was this year. I love his interactions with the neighbour.
I've seen so many Swedish shows like this I feel like Sweden is my third home and I can almost understand what's being said without the subtitles sometimes.

Yep. Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Danish, Icelandic....some great stuff and a fair bit on Netflix, backed up by a couple of other sources. Quite a bit on C4/4OD too (Walter Presents).

Yes, that looks a good resource. I dip in occasionally to check their content to see what interests me that I hadn't heard about.

Another shout for Rebecka Martinsson

Season 2 was released 3 years after season 1 and it continues in the same format with 2 part stories. It's fairly seamless expect for one thing. The title role is a different actress. Of course I watched the last of S1 and then the first of S2 the next evening so I was thrown. But I stuck with it and it's every bit as good.

Maybe even better. Parts 5&6 were best yet; a real tear jerker.

Catching Helstrom on Hulu. Not terrible.

Binging Pine Gap, on Netflix, a spy type spin off to Secret City. Another Oz show and rather good so far.

I've Valhalla Murders lined up. Norwegian crime drama. Might have to check out Dead Wind. It seems familiar.

Top TV that.

Started Greyzone last night. Dialogue somewhat out of synch in first episode. Matters less with subtitles but still irritating when you hear a crashing sound and see nothing on screen to match it yet. Hopefully just that episode.

We're watching "Criminal", the German version this time. It's the same as the Brit version, right down to the exact same set. They've just gone and rotated in the actors for a different story. Still quite compelling.

The documentary series;The vietnam war,I remember a little of the news growing up and have read many books on vietnam.But this series brings it all home and makes you think what for a war no one wanted but was fought anyway.Tragic the history is fascinating!!!
