This Saturday sees the introduction of a new team of 'tecs to the screen in Arne Dahl's 'The Blinded Man - from his 1998 book 'Misterioso' - on BBC4 as the Beeb continues - albeit with a break - it's talent for finding the best European Crime Drama.
|The Intercrime Group|
The Blinded Man introduces us to the Intercrime Group, a scratched-together team of detectives with varying skills charged with solving three murders.
This is the first of five two-part shows - so we have a good ten weekends to look forward to. I've seen a preview of the show - and it's very different from previous Scandinavian shows - less violence, more actual detection, and more interplay between the characters.
|Seven very different personalties - Not a 'Sarah Lund' among them|
The BBC4 show preview is here - but for the real lowdown I'd suggest you check out my favourite Crime Fiction website - Dead Good Books, with their article.
|Les Revenants has become a cult already.|
The only problem for me is that I'm currently in Norway on a motorcycle break. Hopefully I'll be back by Saturday - with a bit of good fortune, I should just be pulling the motorcycle in to the driveway as the opening credits roll.
If not, it'll be BBC iPlayer on catchup for me - so no tweeting the plot, please :-)
