Melinda Kinneman and Henrik Norlén begin filming season two of Modus

Loved the first series

The Killing Times

modusOur ears prick up every time we hear of a new slither of news coming from Scandinavian or the Nordic countries – despite so much more content from the region becoming available in the UK and elsewhere, we’re STILL always up for a bit of Scandi action. Modus (based on the books by Anne Holt) arrived in the UK just before Christmas with a bit of a fanfare – it had been a while since BBC4 had a Scandi drama in the Saturday, 9pm slot – and festive Stockholm looked gorgeous.

Sprinter Sacre. Thanks For The Memories. 

Beautiful tribute

The horse who soared to supremacy and leapt into the hearts of us all, has reached his final destination, retirement.

He moved with the all the poise and grace of a ballet dancer, while carrying the looks and physique of a Hollywood heartthrob. In a world where beauty is as beauty does, he didn’t disappoint.
