She admits to the shootings, however, she refuses to commit any involvement in the crime. The show tries to figure out the motives behind these crimes and the reason why they took place.
The bridge has become a cult Swedish-Danish co-production upon which many foreign shows have been based. The show begins with a dead body within the Oresund bridge that connects Denmark’s capital city, the Danish capital Copenhagen with Sweden’s third-largest city Malmo. This causes Danish as well as Swedish police to work together because the body is under the police jurisdiction that both nations. The show is among the best shows in the Nordic noir genre. It has a feeling of eerie and melancholy throughout the entire show. I could not find excellent trailers for season one, so this one is from season 2.
