New to Netflix UK, Ireland and the Nordics

Netflix subscribers in the UK and Ireland are in luck – the first two seasons of the Swedish series Wallander have now been added to Netflix. Based on the books by Henning Mankell and starring Krister Henriksson, the series follows brooding detective Kurt Wallander, who brings an intense obsession and fierce intellect to the murder cases he solves in this dark crime series. Can’t sleep? No problem. A daily slug of bourbon helps this brooding cop solve Sweden’s most disturbing cases.

Netflix subscribers in the Nordic countries will be able to now watch the Danish film A Royal Affair, starring Mads Mikkelsen, Alicia Vikander and Mikkel Boe Folsgaard. In 18th-century Denmark, the unstable King Christian VII neglects his young queen, Mathilde, who falls in love with his German physician. A young queen. An insane king. An amorous physician. It’s just your average 18th century revolution in the making.
