We’re heading back to Sweden for the start of 2019 on BBC Four. The first series of Black Lake (Svartsjön) was a mildly entertaining, daft mash-up of horror and the closed-location crime story, and the news is that BBC Four has acquired series two and has announced the transmission date. In series two, the action […]
Not long to go now until series two of Trapped makes its bow in its native Iceland. Unfortunately, it looks as though it’s going to be a bit longer until we see it in the UK – our guess? February – but it’s definitely something to look forward to. Producer RVK has released a new, […]
Prequel series have been a mixed bag in recent years – Endeavour has been a success, Prime Suspect 1973 not so much.

Ah. Now then. It seems like we haven’t had a Scandi series for a while, but with the nights drawing in and the chill getting, well, chillier, it’s the perfect time to head back over the North Sea to Sweden and catch-up with Beck.

Spanish crime drama is really cooking at the moment, and another series is set to enter the world.
Álvaro Morte will star in ‘polygamous mystery drama’ El Embarcadero (The Pier).
The eight-part series tells the story of high-profile architect Álexandra (Verónica Sánchez) who, shattered by the suicide of her husband Oscar, discovers he had been leading a double life with another woman, Veronica (Irene Arcos), and their child.

At first she wants to tell her about Oscar’s death, but instead she decides to befriend her under a false identity to find out why Oscar, though sincere in his love for Álexandra, lived this lie. What really happened that fatal night when his life was taken?
Here’s a trailer with English subtitles:
El Embarcadero is a Movistar+ original series and will debut in Spain…
