Agreed. A rather flowery review here, but I'm tending to agree......"it sounds like 120 minutes of unexpurgated misery. Actually it WAS 120 minutes of unexpurgated misery." If anyone has not seen the last 2 episodes, then best not to click on the link.

It wasn't much like the book.

Very poor adaptation.

Off on a total tangent, just watched the final episode of "Trapped", the Icelandic series occupying The Bridge's slot - 9pm BBC4.

Quite well-done, I thought, and kept my attention most of the time, but seemed to leave a few lost threads for me.

I'll get around to watching them tonight. I'm really enjoying the series, it makes such a change from the usual British or US crimmie. That French series from last year, Witnesses, still sticks in my mind.

Talking of French series, Spin is also drawing to a close (one episode to go). A fascinating political thriller.

On the subject of British crime series, the last Shetland was brilliant.

Finished watching 'Trapped' last night. Quite harrowing at times and pretty grim but compulsive watching. I got confused over who was who, as the names mean nothing to me and don't stick in my head!

Yep, names of people and places are not only difficult to remember, the way they are pronounced has only a vague connection with the spelling! :sh
