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... :)

Enjoyed The Valley very much.

 

Am loving Romanzo Criminale at the moment, fantastic Italian crime show. Made after a movie apparently.

'The Deep', set around Bondi Beach, with beautiful camera work and a good plot, starring Noah Taylor and Yael Stone. It's a four part murder mystery, third ep airs this week. No cringe factor, essential viewing for all Sydneysiders.

I've been on a steady SBS On Demand diet for the last few months!

Arne Dahl, Spring Tide, Midnight Sun, The Disappearance, Modus and Professor T. Enjoyed them all, especially Spring Tide and Midnight Sun.

Currently watching Trapped and will follow that with Eyewitness.

Is Romanzo Criminale still available (all seasons)?

I don't know re Romanzo, have a look tonight. I haven't noticed any expiration announcements on the links. I thoroughly enjoyed that series.

 

I also very much liked Jordskott.

Giving Eyewitness a go now

 

http://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/video/839975491684/eyewitness

 

Well worth it.  Two rellies went to Iceland, Denmark and Norway recently.  Loved it.  One loved it so much he's planning a move to Norway imminently.  He's a proper geek so work shouldn't be too hard to find.  I'm stuck here building a house.  Sigh!

I have watched 6 episodes. Watched ep 6 over a month ago....felt that there still hasn't been a satisfactory resolution, if they only made 6. 

:(

 

EDIT: Just did some research, they did only make 6 episodes.

Deutschland 83, enjoyed the first two episodes!

http://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/program/deutschland-83

http://www.sbs.com.au/guide/article/2017/01/31/venture-west-germany-spy-drama-deutschland-83

< Infused with a compelling mix of spy drama and great new-wave 80s pop music, Deutschland 83 is the story of a young East German soldier confronted with the freedoms of the West while working as a spy during the Cold War in the 1980s. 

A co-production between the US and Germany, it’s been hailed as a critical success, picking up a coveted Peabody Award, and a commercial smash when it aired in the UK last year - it soon became the most popular foreign-language drama in British television history.

Like US drama The Americans, another acclaimed 80s-set drama to which Deutschland 83 has been favourably compared, it positions the viewer on the side of the ostensible bad guy.

The main character in this, Martin (Jonas Nay), is a young man living in East Germany who has only known his country as one divided in two by the Berlin Wall. 

While he works as a border guard, it would be a stretch to describe him as a true believer in the ways of what US President Ronald Reagan infamously dubbed the ‘Evil Empire’.

But he is susceptible to being recruited as a spy by his cold-blooded, brilliantly manipulative aunt Lenora (Maria Schrader), an agent of East German intelligence agency the Stasi.

Patriotism plays a small role in Martin’s willingness to take part, but Lenora promising to fast-track medical treatment for Martin’s sick mother is a much greater incentive. >

We are up to picking a newie so we might try that one Ian, we couldn't get 'Heartless' to 'work' last night for some reason, or anything else for that matter. We kept getting a little yellow box 'video not available now' or something like that.

Eww, that's like the bad old SBS.  It's been way better since they introduced the sign-in thing.  Mind you, the marketing information they wanted from me, dob etc, they did't get.  Thanks for the info about Deutschland.  Next after Eyewitness.

 

It's been a saving grace since the ABC was Murdoched.
