Others I thought were good from that neck of the woods.., Movie: Headhunters (Swedish I think). Books and Movie: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy. TV Series: The Tunnel.

 

American: Breaking Bad of course AND Better Call Saul.

I love Nordic Noir TV shows. Just finished binging on 10 episodes of Jordskott, enjoyed it a lot but it wasn't as exciting as The Killing, still the best Nordic Noir for me. Or on the environmental issue, I prefer the more recent Occupied on Netflix.

Thanks for the recommendations on SBSOnDemand though, I didn't know about these shows so a great discovery for me :)

I will continue with Trapped next...

Trapped was excellent from EP 01-06, then it got sloppy and ...

Spring Tide on the other hand took a while to get really interesting and has wonderful ending.

Watch 2 episodes of Arnh Dahl, didn't like it that much so switched to Mammon. Thought it was very well produced. Although I suspected where it was going and really did not like the theme, it was so captivating I finished watching the series!

Beck is a good series. Beautifully written and well acted. Good if you prefer your drama more slow paced.

The Polish series The Border (So called Nordic & Beyond) is great too and a nice change after so much Nordic tvs :) can't wait for Season 2.

Well, that's a lot of TV... :)
