The streaming service Netflix has added a heap of Scandinavian television series to their platform ahead of the long weekend.

The first, second and third season of the hit Danish/Swedish series The Bridge has been added to Netflix in the UK, Ireland, Italy, France, Spain, Finland, Lithuania and Estonia. In the first two seasons, we see Saga Norén and Martin Rohde working together to solve crimes that take place between the two countries.

The first season of the Norwegian political series Occupied has been released on Netflix in Italy, France, Spain, Sweden, Finland and Estonia.

    Although I live in France my first language is English. Unfortunately Netflix in France never offers English subtitles for non-English language productions. It’s a shame because there’s a lot I’d like to watch but can’t.
