Yes, we’re all getting excited with series four of The Bridge about to kick-off in the UK, but waiting in the wings is another crime drama heavyweight and one of our favourite – Iceland’s Trapped.
The second is series has been filming in Reykjavik, but now host broadcaster RVK has released an Icelandic-language trailer. Unfortunately, we can’t embed it here, but from what we can see it looks fantastic.

What’s more, more plot details have emerged.
Series two, according to RVK will cover the death of two people, but the plot is far more complicated. Creator and director, Baltasar Kormákur, says: “Audiences can expect a series similar to the former, but in many ways very different.”

Full disclosure: I’m still not entirely sure that Danish series Greyzone is crime or not. It feels like more of a political thriller, but because it’s got good, familiar people in it and, well, it’s Danish (as well as Swedish and German, too), we think it’ll be of interest to readers of The Killing Times, regardless of whether it’s pure crime or not.

Oh how we enjoyed Spanish series I Know Who You Are (Sé quién eres). The twisty-turny series – which we dubbed Shakespeare on speed – was such fun, populated as it was by such a loathsome cast of characters (too loathsome for some) and possessed of such a fervent pace that it was tremendous fun to watch. In fact, we voted it number six in our favourite crime dramas of 2017 (read that here). Now news reaches us that a US network will rework it for an American audience.

Need to watch series 1!
BBC Four has had to alter its scheduling slightly in the wake of the break in Below The Surface, but one thing has been fairly sure for a few weeks now: Belgian series Salamander will follow the Danish hostage story. Now we have confirmation of when it will be transmitted.
