I often get asked to recommend a good Swedish book or movie. Lately I’ve been watching the Danish thriller series Forbrydelsen. I rarely follow any TV series (as some of you know, I don’t even have a TV!), but this one is different.
This show is full of suspense with a great plot, believable characters and brilliant acting. The production is tasteful and restrained, and very Nordic. Forbrydelsen is frequently compared to Twin Peaks, but as a bonus you get to see some beautiful views of Copenhagen in every episode!
“Forbrydelsen” means “the crime” in Danish, but its English title is The Killing (it’s been aired in over 15 countries and there is an American version of it). To get the most out of this show I recommend that you watch the original in Danish.
