The Bridge on BBC4 maintained its quality to the very end. Sofia Helin was superb as the ADHD Saga - it has been a good spring for actresses - and Kim Bodnia was pretty damn good as Martin. Currenly filling the Scandinavian slot on Saturday night is Sebastian Bergman with one of the Swedish Wallanders, Rolf Lassgard, as a criminal profiler with what may be an Oedipus Complex and a penchant for the younger ladies. Bergman's breakdown on returning to his dead mother's house was an acting tour de force. The revelation for me, though, was Tomas Laustiola as CID chief Torkel Hoglund (the one with the gun in the image below). The hardest copper since Jim Taggart.
Meanwhile, Mad Men plods away on Sky Atlantic without me, I'm afraid. I tried, I really did, but I no longer care.
On the home front, the second series of ITV's Scott & Bailey was a lot better than the first, mainly because Amelia Bullmore's DCI Murray stepped forward to fill the void that is Lesley Sharp. The standout British drama has to be Paul Abbot's awkwardly-name Hit & Miss for Sky 1. Essentially the Gallagher kids from Shameless are bequeathed to gender-transitioning hit-person Mia. Chloe Sevigny's nude scenes are extraordinary - a very brave performance.
