Truly Awful Copy Cat
24 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Once you have watched the original Broen / Bron (Swedish / Danish) version, The Tunnel is a complete waste of time. Its like 'Groundhog Day', knowing exactly whats coming next. I hope they don't make a complete hash by copying the 2nd series of Broen / Bron. The British DCI Karl Roebuck played by Stephen Dillane is the only redeeming feature of this programme. Clémence Poésy who plays the French detective Elise Wassermann is no where near as good as Sofia Helin playing Saga Norén in the original series. It would be good if a completely new story was devised that played on language and cultural differences between France and England leading to various problems exacerbated by the Elise Wassermann character's Asperger syndrome.
