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

I've been doing some catching up on the last episodes of what is supposed to be the final series. I still find the opening music sort of hypnotic, but can hardly make out most of the words. This might be a repeat post, but here are the lyrics.

"The name of the soundtrack for the Danish-Swedish crime series is Hollow Talk.

Its poetic lyrics are as follows...

Echoes start as a cross in you
Trembling noises that come too soon
Spatial movement which seems to you
Resonating your mask or feud
Hollow talking and hollow girl Force it up from the root of pain

Never said it was good, never said it was near
Shadow rises and you are here

And then you cut
You cut it out
And everything
Goes back to the beginning

Silence seizes a cluttered room
Light is shed not a breath too soon
Darkness rises in all you do
Standing and drawn across the room
Spatial movements are butterflies
Shadows scatter without a fire

There's never been bad, there has always been truth
Muted whisper of the things she'll move

And then you cut
You cut it out
And everything
Goes back to the beginning."

To me, it reads like something from Google Translate. Sorry, but I'm going for "pretentious".

Call me a philistine but much poetry comes across to me as pretentious TBH.

Song lyrics - particularly of 'pop' songs (popular music from the last 5 decades) are often nonsensical.
Don't blame me - I voted remain :con
