The Bridge (Danish: Broen; Swedish: Bron) is a Scandinavian crime drama television series created and written by Hans Rosenfeldt. It is a joint creative and financed production between Sveriges Television of Sweden and Danmarks Radio of Denmark, as well as German ZDF.
Three seasons of the show have so far been broadcast, starring Sofia Helin as Swedish police detective Saga Norén. Kim Bodnia was her Danish counterpart Martin Rohde in seasons 1 and 2, and Thure Lindhardt was her counterpart Henrik Saboe in season 3. The first season started with a police investigation following the discovery of a dead body on the Øresund Bridge connecting Sweden and Denmark. It was first broadcast on SVT1 and DR1 during the autumn of 2011. The second season aired in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland over ten weeks from 22 September to 24 November 2013, and began airing in the United Kingdom on BBC Four from 4 January 2014.

What appears to be the body of a female Swedish politician is discovered in the middle of the Øresund Bridge, which connects Copenhagen with Malmö. The body, cut in half at the waist, has been placed precisely on the border between the countries, thus falling under the jurisdiction of both the Danish and Swedish police agencies. After further examination, what appears to be one body is two halves of two separate corpses, the lower half belonging to a Danish prostitute. Two detectives, Saga Norén, from Sweden, and Martin Rohde, from Denmark, lead the investigation to catch the murderer.
The investigation quickly escalates as a journalist, Daniel Ferbé, whose car was used in the crime, begins receiving phone calls. The caller, who becomes known as the "Truth Terrorist", claims to be committing his crimes in order to draw attention to various social problems. A social worker, Stefan Lindberg, whose sister becomes a victim of the Truth Terrorist, becomes an early suspect. However, events soon lead the Danish and Swedish teams to conclude that the killer has connections to the police.
In the course of the investigation, Martin and Saga develop a close working relationship, although they are very different people. Martin has an eighteen-year-old son from his first marriage, August, who is now living with Martin and his current wife, Mette, by whom Martin has three children; after Martin has had a vasectomy, Mette discovers that she is expecting twins. Saga lives alone and does not seem to feel she needs a serious relationship, instead picking up men in bars for casual sex. She displays symptoms consistent with Asperger syndrome or a similar autistic spectrum disorder, including poor social skills, difficulty empathising with others and an inability to channel her emotions, which leads to her coming across as cold, insensitive and blunt; the show's creators have stated that they have been intentionally vague on the exact nature of Saga's social issues, not wanting a generic diagnosis to define expectations of the character. Saga has nonetheless been noted as a positive representation of a character apparently in the autistic spectrum as, despite her social ineptitude, she is clearly of above-average intelligence, with a fine eye for detail and strong analytical skills. She is clearly not a malicious person, genuinely making an effort to learn from her mistakes and apologise for any offence she may have caused. Nevertheless, she does have difficulty in establishing relationships and feels inadequate in being able to manage people. For this reason, she refuses a promotion. In addition, she at one point explains to Martin that her coworkers confuse her lack of outward emotion for emotional detachment, and their comments about her behaviour often hurt her feelings. Her superior, Hans - and later Martin - provides her with supervision whenever she struggles or messes up in social situations, usually through interrupting her or whispering in her ear afterwards.
After the killer has murdered several people, his true motivation begins to seem personal. They discover that the crimes have been planned over a period of several years.
The second series starts 13 months after the end of the first series. A coaster veers off course and rams into the Øresund Bridge. Saga arrives on the scene and finds the ship deserted save for five people – three Swedish and two Danish – chained and in poor condition below deck. Saga arranges to have Martin assigned to the case, though he has gone through a nervous breakdown following his son's death. After the victims on the coaster die from pneumonic plague, a viral video appears in which four disguised eco-terrorists claim responsibility for the incident. They embark on further attacks, including blowing up a petrol tanker and distributing poisoned food. As the police close in on the group, they are all found dead in a shipping container, thus raising the question of whether there are other terrorist cells or a larger group.
The keynote speaker of an upcoming EU climate conference in Copenhagen is one of those killed by poisoning. Caroline Brandstrup-Julin, the head of the conference, appoints Viktoria Nordgren, head of the Medisonus pharmaceutical company, as his replacement. While arranging the congress, Caroline's sister Bodil is asked by Oliver Nordgren, Viktoria's brother and a shareholder of Medisonus, whether she would be willing to write Viktoria's biography; Viktoria has been diagnosed with an incurable disease and has about six months to live.
During the retrieval of a sunken boat, seven corpses are found inside. The owner of the boat is Marcus Stenberg. The investigation discovers the identities of the dead and finds that some of them had previously been volunteers in medical studies undertaken by Medisonus, but who had gone missing. The company's security chief tells them that a possible industrial spy gained access to their headquarters. Bodil and Viktoria meet to discuss the content of the biography. Oliver, who lives in the house next to his sister and has secretly installed cameras in her house, watches them make love. When Viktoria asks Oliver to keep out of her life, he confesses that he is responsible for the eco-terrorist acts. When he tries to kill her, Gertrud arrives to save Viktoria and kills Oliver. The police assume that Oliver acted alone as the ringleader of the plot, but Saga then turns up further evidence that there must be at least one more accomplice.
The police pathologist shows that two of the dead bodies found earlier contain a deadly virus, which causes internal bleeding and becomes airborne once the victim's blood escapes the body; Saga and Martin guess that Gertrud has developed the virus and infected Viktoria with the intent of spreading it at the EU conference. They manage to alert Caroline, and command her to evacuate the building and turn off the ventilation. Eventually, the police arrive at the conference and begin searching for the dying Viktoria. She is eventually discovered in a bathroom by Pernille, one of Martin's Danish colleagues, who handcuffs her to a pipe to help contain her. Before she can leave, however, Viktoria starts coughing blood, infecting Pernille with the virus. As the area is contained, Martin and Saga communicate with Pernille over the radio, and as Viktoria dies painfully, Pernille decides not to go the same way, and commits suicide with her gun. Meanwhile, Gertrud drives to a secluded warehouse where she shoots a video confessing her actions, but is executed by a mysterious figure who arrives and castigates her for the failure of her plot.
Throughout the season, Martin, in an attempt to get over the death of August, begins visiting Jens (his son's murderer) in prison, to try and get through to him. He is satisfied when he sees that his visits have made an impression, and Jens begins to feel remorse for his crime. Martin eventually moves back in with his estranged Mette, ready to start afresh. Towards the end of the season, Martin's wife Mette admits that she no longer loves him. A distraught Martin blames Jens, and begins to suffer renewed symptoms of paranoia. When Saga hears that Jens has died in prison, apparently a suicide, she suspects Martin of having poisoned him. After she apparently finds evidence, the series ends with Martin being arrested and taken away by the police, but without his guilt being established.
The third series starts 13 months after the end of the second.
A Danish citizen, Helle Anker, is found murdered and posed in a construction site in Malmö, Sweden, in a tableau meant to evoke a traditional family. On further investigation, it is revealed that Anker, a lesbian married to a Swedish woman, was the pioneer of Denmark's first gender-neutral preschool. Saga is assigned to the case, but finds that the Copenhagen police officer assigned to work with her, Hanne Thomsen (Kirsten Olesen), is openly hostile due to Saga's role in the incarceration of Martin Rohde. As the investigation progresses, Saga is then assigned a new Danish partner Henrik Saboe (Thure Lindhardt), an insomniac with secrets of his own. As more murders take place, Saga is also faced with the sudden appearance in her life of her estranged mother (Ann Petrén), who has an alternative account of her sister's childhood and threatens to reveal the secrets of Saga's past. Hans (Dag Malmberg), now married to Lilian (Sarah Boberg), the chief of the Copenhagen police, is incapacitated, and Saga must also deal with a new chief, Linn Björkman (Maria Kulle), who is not as understanding as Hans. Various strands of the story are interwoven, including a right wing vlogger, whose denunciations seem to mirror the murder victims, a gambling addict and his pregnant girlfriend, the head of a vocational center who traffics in contraband on the side, a real estate heiress having an affair with her best friend's 17 year old son, a self-help guru, and a multi-millionaire art collector. The series also focuses on Saga's deteriorating mental state after turning Martin in, new self-doubts about her childhood, and colleagues who question her abilities.

Series two started shooting in October 2012, and began to air in Denmark and Sweden on Sunday 22 September 2013 (20.00 in Denmark and 21.00 in Sweden).
The writer of the show, Hans Rosenfeldt, revealed in January 2014 that he is writing series three, with a return of most of the main characters, including Martin Rohde. Filming started in September 2014 with an expected air date in Scandinavia starting in Autumn 2015. In June 2014 it was announced that Kim Bodnia, who plays Martin Rohde, would not appear in the third series. Initially it was reported that Bodnia left after becoming unhappy with the way his character was evolving. Bodnia and Helin later clarified that his character was not written into the script and that series 3 will focus on Saga coping with losing her only friend. Both suggested the possibility that Bodnia's character may return. Later, Hans Rosenfeldt confirmed that Bodnia left the show due to creative differences.
The Scandinavian launch of Series 3 Episode 1 took place on 27 September 2015. In a nod to Bodnia's departure, the titles in the opening episode of the series posted Sofia Helin's name alone, with the spot that had been occupied by Bodnia's left vacant. From episode two, the opening credits now state Sofia Helin and Thure Lindhardt as the two protagonists of the series. The names, along with the Swedish and Danish titles, are separated by three lines, indicating the third series (they had been separated by one line in the first, and two in the second series).
Series One Episodes
Series one consisted of ten episodes. Each episode is 60 minutes in length. They were first broadcast on Wednesday nights at 8pm in Denmark and 9pm in Sweden.

The first airing of the series was screened on Sweden's SVT1 weekly from Wednesday 21 September 2011 at 21.00. Denmark's DR1 followed a week later in their 20.00 slot every Wednesday. By screening the final episode immediately after episode 9, DR1 managed to screen episode 10 simultaneously with SVT1.
On several occasions, The Bridge failed to have sufficient viewers to be placed in SVT1's weekly Top 10 programmes. This was mainly due to competition from commercial broadcaster TV4 with its offering gaining over a million viewers. In Sweden, The Bridge won its time slot for the first five episodes against weak competition from Hawaii Five-0 on TV4. From episode 6, it aired against the popular reality show Berg flyttar in, which would beat The Bridge until the final episode, when they virtually tied.
Sveriges Television reported that up to November 2013, the first series had been purchased for broadcasting in 134 countries worldwide and the Daily Telegraph reported in February 2014 that The Bridge was on screen in 174 countries.
In the UK, the series was shown in weekly two-episode blocks on BBC Four and BBC HD from 21 April 2012. In Germany, it was shown by broadcaster ZDF from 18 March 2012. In Spain is broadcast on AXN it is broadcast on wednesdays from 8 January 2014 until present waiting for the third season. In Poland, the series was broadcast in double episodes from 2 May to 30 May 2012 on Ale Kino+. In Brazil, the series premiered on +Globosat channel on 13 August 2012 at 22h. The series premiered in Australia on Wednesday, 5 September 2012 on SBS Two, where the first episode had overnight ratings of 101,000 viewers. It was also screened in Israel on September 30 on HOT VoD. On January 9, 2014 it also started screening on yes VoD with both series 1 and 2 available. Co-producers NRK screened the series in Norway with audiences in excess of 600,000 viewers. NRK are also keen to participate in the production of the second series. In Ireland, the show will air on TG4 beginning in autumn 2013.
