A copy, but good...
1 November 2013 | by tommot-821-930383See all my reviews

Most of us have watched "The Bridge". We've watched 'The Killing', we've watched 'Borgen' - A natural progression, right? Watching "The Tunnel" we already know the story. We know how it ends, and we know why. Does that genuinely detract from it? Denmark and Sweden are more "friendly" than Britain and France, stereotypically. Sad, but apparently so. The dynamic is changed to suit the scenario.

The original wasn't about the murderer as much as it was about the tenuous (professional) relationship between the two detectives.

That characterization translates well. The story may be the same, though the settings may be different. The actors in this version add a different edge to it, and do it well.

It neither exceeds nor disappoints...
