So...

The Anglo-French one (The Tunnel) was adapted from The Bridge - in the first series of both, the story is essentially the same - character names are changed but the plot is basically identical - from series 2 onwards the storylines diverge

I watched a different version of the Bridge, but instead of the body splitting Scandi countries, it was an Anglo/French version where the body was in the channel tunnel.
From memory the female lead drive a 944. As I'd already watched the Anglo version I didn't bother with the Scandi.
For those that have seen both, is it the same story or do the story lines change as the series develops.


Were there leather trousers and a female detective who loved sex but didnt have much personality. Question

just asking Dont know

No leather trousers from memory but seemed to be asbergers and loved a bounce with randoms, inclusive of Anglo detectives son

No - she was in Series 1, right from the start - if you remember, she puts in a complaints against the Danish detective when he lets someone cross the bridge whilst they are still trying to figure out who 'owns' the body

It was Henrick who didn't join until later, as they needed to replace Martin who she had locked up.

yes and she questioned Martin on the size of his manhood without breaking a smile Floor

I thought it was like an asbergers type condition but was unsure if that is what they trying to portray or not.

I liked it when she made positiive attempts at being friendly to her team and tanking and complimenting them for their efforts, having been advised by Martin and she did it in a dry manner which was totally unconvincing.

If interested in this car, don't forget to check the suspension very carefully. She had a habit in the early series of parking very carelessly outside the police station! Very Happy

Hmmmm ..... that's weird ...... when I went there a couple of weeks ago they had the whole series ....... I have tried everything to see if I could again get that back up again but no ....... maybe its because there is a new series coming out ....... Ah well I guess that can go back on a back burner ....... can't say that I am that fussed either way.

Hand Yep and they always had someone playing a Hammond organ to chivvy things along. Plus on VHS if you had the luxury of freeze frame the jittering between frames became a bit disconcerting what

ETA: The other Danish Series I was thinking of was 'Follow the Money'. Rather good Thumb
