Alarm dispatcher Asger Holm answers an emergency call from a kidnapped woman. When the call is suddenly disconnected, the search for the woman and her kidnapper begins. With the phone as his only tool, Asger enters a race against time to save the endangered woman. But soon he realizes that he is dealing with a crime that is far bigger than he first thought.

Gustav Möller’s Den skyldige, or in international territories The Guilty, is a simplistic masterstroke of cinematic intensity and atmospheric narrative. Taking place primarily in one claustrophobic albeit vastly atmospheric setting at an emergency service office with desk jockey Asger Holm, played by the extravagantly

Review Round-Up: ‘Chasing the Dragon’ & ‘Skybound’

Chasing The Dragon

Stars: Donnie Yen, Andy Lau, Philip Keung, Wilfred Lau, Wilfred Lau, Kent Cheng, Bryan Larkin, Ben Ng, Ken Tong, Niki Chow, Michelle Hu, Wai-Man Chan, Lawrence Chou, Wong Chun, Jai Day | Written and Directed by Wong Jing

Crippled Ho, an illegal immigrant from mainland China sneaks into British-colonized Hong Kong in 1963, a den of corruption, drugs and violence. Working as a thug for a local gang, Ho comes to the attention of corrupt cop Lee Rock. The unlikely duo team up and set about taking over the city’s thriving, dangerous underworld.

Directed by Hong Kong film veteran Wong Jing (God of Gamblers), Chasing the Dragon has been described as a Chinse version of Scarface – and its easy to see why. Both films are something of a period piece: Scarface was set in the opulent 80s when drug dealers became rock stars, whereas Chasing the Dragon is set in the corrupt,

Sarah Lund: Natalie Haynes's guide to TV detectives #22

Without Sofie Gråbøl as Sarah Lund, The Killing would be just another sad-eyed, bleak-skied crime drama. With her, it's the most compelling thing on TV

Spoiler alert: We have tried to keep series three spoilers out of this piece and talk about Sarah Lund in general, as we know not everyone is quite up-to-date with the latest season. (If you are, please do take a look at our episode blog.) However, if you're lagging behind, you might want to be careful in the comments.

When The Killing first appeared on BBC4 in the spring of 2011, no one could have predicted its total cultural penetration. Not only did its viewing figures trump those of other cult shows such as Mad Men in the UK, but they did so in spite of it being in Danish with subtitles, and it showing sunlight for, at most, three minutes in any episode.

Spoiler Alert: This blog is for those watching The Bridge on BBC4. If you haven't seen episodes three and four, do not read on – and if you've seen futher in the series, please do not leave spoilers.

Vicky Frost's episodes one and two blog

Hello one and all, and welcome to tonight's blog. Lovely to see so many of you turn out last week – not just for the after-show chat, but also the programme itself: it got an audience of more than 1 million, which is enormous for a BBC4 show. Admittedly, 10 times more people watched The Voice, but then it isn't performed in two different languages, subtitled, and fronted by a kick-ass detective in leather trousers who thinks looking at corpses on a
