SEE 
 
 
 
A Scandinavian thriller of the first order, The Bridge is a gripping 10 hours of dramatic viewing pleasure. After a victim is placed on the demarcation line on the Oresund Bridge that separates Denmark and Sweden, the authorities from both countries send in two of their best detectives to collaborate and in doing so provide two of the best television characters ever created in the crime thriller genre. It is realistic, gritty, enthralling and utterly addictive. Make sure you don’t confuse it with the American remake! The original is far superior.

HEAR
 
 
There’s nothing like the late discovery of a great band and Spoon’s 8th album, They Want My Soul, fronted by 43-year-old rocker Britt Daniel, is an absolute gem. Hailed as the quintet’s most thumping LP, the songs range from the understated drifting rock of ‘Inside Out’, the catchy ‘New York Kiss’, the indelible joy of ‘Do You’, to the thrust of ‘Rainy Taxi’. The songs combine to make a sort of rock minimalism, making for a new adventure into the gloriously familiar.
