Storyline

Season 2 begins 13 months after the events of the first season. A coastal tanker leaves the Öresund waterway and is headed straight for the Øresund Bridge. When the Coast Guard board the ship they discover there is no crew, and three Swedish and two Danish youths are chained below deck. Saga Norén, County Police, Malmö, is put in charge of the case and contacts Martin Rohde, who is still haunted by the death of his son. Soon it turns out the chained youths were just the beginning... Someone wants to direct our attention to the changing climate and the use of our planet's resources, and will stop at nothing to do it. It all turns into a race against the clock to prevent a disaster where many lives are at stake... Written by Nimbus Film

Trivia

Series creator Hans Rosenfeldt never overtly referred to Saga's social awkwardness as a result of her being on the autism spectrum to the cast, including Sofia Helin, during pre-production. He did explain to Ms. Helin the particular behavioural traits he would like to see manifested in Saga, but "feared any labels bestowed on Saga's odd-behaviour would prevent the actors from relating to the character in an individual and authentic manner." "I did not want them to all rush off and learn a "textbook" approach to aspergers syndrome or autism from the same source material". By not giving the cast and crew a label or category to understand Saga's odd-behaviour, "I hoped that each individual cast and crew member would have a more personal reaction to Saga's character traits and research accordingly".

Im a Bridgeaholic
19 May 2012 | by (Nottingham, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Its Saturday 6:00 pm and the last 2 episodes are on tonight! Its a long time since I've been this hooked on a TV series. Acting, story, setting, filming are all marvellous. The two leading characters and their interplay make a new approach to the 'two opposites been thrown together as partners'. I hope it doesn't offend any sufferers but the Aspergers Disorder of one partner is in no way sad or treated lightly but is extremely funny at times. I was fortunate to record the earlier episodes before todays and have watched two on the last 4 consecutive nights (Im not deleting them and look forward further Bridge weeks in the future). Im only saying all this to encourage anyone who hasn't watch it to do so though you may have to wait for the DVDs. Its 6:15 now, 2:45 to go!
