Despite its small population size, Denmark has recently been producing television dramas that have enjoyed international popularity. A new TV drama genre has even been coined: “Nordic noir”. Some Danish TV dramas have won so much praise that American remakes have been produced in the United States — notably “The Killing” and “The Bridge.

See this article in the Guardian about the Danish-Swedish production of “The Bridge” and the U.S. remake: “The Bridge: Saga Noren vs Sonya Cross“. There is also a British remake of the same Danish series. See this article: “Sky’s remake of The Bridge is set in the Channel tunnel“.

Below are trailer clips from the original Danish version of “The Bridge” and the U.S. remake.
