Scandi snacks for The Bridge finale


Are you ready for tonight’s big finale? I have baked kanelbullar (fresh yeast and sugar pearls available from Sainsbury’s) and bought lördagsgodis (at wilko) and Estella crisps (from the international supermarket). I can’t wait!

Do  you have any favourite Scandinavian snacks? Where do you find them in Britain?

After 11pm, feel free to leave your comments on The Bridge finale (no spoilers until after it has aired please, even if you have been at Nordicana today!).


The Bridge is back!

Sorry I was too excited last week and forgot to post but The Bridge is back!

Saga and Martin in The Bridge

Saga and Martin are back investigating a crime involving some mysterious goings-on at the Öresund Bridge between Copenhagen and Malmö.

Last series had me totally gripped and this year has had the same effect. As soon as the first double-bill was over, I wanted more! The plot will inevitably be bonkers again, and started well in episodes 1 and 2. Eco-activisits in animal masks! Pneumonic flu! A kid setting himself alight!

And of course we get to follow the relationship between Saga and Martin. He is still in grief, she is trying to be ‘normal’ (why?!) and their romantic relationships are all over the place.

If you have not been watching, get on iPlayer now and be ready at 9pm tonight on BBC 4 for the next two episodes.

We can expect more discussion of Nordic Noir and hopefully there will be more Scandi TV on in the UK soon. We also have to wonder how they will make Series three. A train crash on the bridge? A plane hijacked to hit it? Any ideas?

Are you watching The Bridge? What are your favourite Nordic TV shows?
