@redswir1 Wire In The Blood, Cracker, Rebus, Wallander (Kenneth Branagh starring), Luther…a few personal favourites. Don’t stop there, though…Scandinavian powerhouse procedurals cannot be topped with the double-whammy of Ørnen: En krimi-odyssé and the original series Forbrydelsen before the American remake in The Killing.
Also really enjoying the Aus series Underbelly, though not sure of its availability overseas. In classic style, it strips away that god-awful glamour of Hollywood crime and just lays down the historic, grubby, blunt-force trauma that is Australian organised crime and the police task forces that bring them down. Irreverent, dirty, devoid of painful mythologising.
