THE BRIDGE set to be the darkest season yet

Hans Rosenfeldt has taken to the Huffington Post to change some the details he has previously mentioned regarded the fourth – and possibly last – season of The Bridge.

In an earlier podcast, Rosenfeldt said that the storyline for season four is complete, has been submitted to Swedish Broadcaster SVT, and that he is now in the process of writing the first three episodes.


“It takes place on Halloween. Halloween is great in some parts of Denmark. They really go for it, more than in Sweden, so it takes place in Denmark on Halloween night.”

“It gets pretty nasty. (The murder) is a bit smaller, not so large scale. It is even smaller than the third season, which was staged with three mannequins and a victim. This is even less so, but I would say it is frightening.”

However, in the new Huffington Post interview, Rosenfeldt now says that he gave away too much information:

“There was a rumour – started by me, accidentally, because I mentioned it by mistake – that the fourth series would be starting at Halloween. But we’ve actually changed that now. I think we’ve come up with possibly the most disturbing opening scene ever.”
