Little to report
jc-osms from United Kingdom

Second entertaining episode of the new-to-me Danish crime drama with
feisty forty- something newspaper crime reporter again funding herself
close to the action. When looks-like-suicide-but-you-know-it-isn't
occurs in her neighbour's house, Dicte naturally enough investigates
and suspects foul-play and if course she's not wrong.
Naturally characters and situations develop a little more from the
first double episode, so her relationship with her daughter gets
deeper, especially when the latter indirectly finds out that her mother
gave up her first child to the care of her religiously steadfast
parents, her frisky friends talk freely about sex and she bonds a
little more with the womanising Maverick reporter colleague who she
lets stay with her overnight and of course the grudgingly admiring
detective who she apparently can't stop bumping into.
The whodunit crime story played out well with some sprinklings of
risqué humour confirming its post-watershed time slot. The running
thread in the background will probably either be her quest for her now
grown up soon and romance (or possibly just sex) with one of the two
guys mentioned above.
I'm okay with these things as I quite like the character but just hope
they don't get in the way of some good yarns too.
Time will tell...
