Synopsis

During a blackout, the body of a woman is found in the middle of the Øresund Bridge, between Sweden and Denmark. Half of it belongs to a Swedish politician, the other half to a Danish prostitute.

Trapped in the middle of the bridge, a bi-national investigatory team is put together to solve the crime. Michael, the laid-back family man from Denmark, and Saga, the rather difficult single from Sweden have to work together to catch the murderer before his anti-corruption agenda wins over public opinion.

Claiming to be a ‘moral terrorist’, the first truth the perpetrator wants society to accept is that equality before the law does not exist. While the police stopped looking for the missing prostitute after only two weeks, in the Swedish politician’s murder case, no stone has been left unturned.

The second truth the perpetrator wants to communicate is society’s ignorance in regards to the homeless. Proposing a trade-off, the murderer offers to spare the life of Roland, a homeless Danish man, if 4 wealthy home-owners in Copenhagen and Malmö open their houses to the homeless. When the homeowners fail to show compassion for the homeless, Michael and Saga have another very public murder on their hands.

As public opinion moves to the terrorist’s side, he announces his third lessons; our attitude towards the mentally ill. Having trained a group of mentally confused people to commit horrifically violent acts, the terrorist unleashes them on society provoking Martin and Saga to question whether indeed the perpetrator has a moral agenda, or if these staged murders are in fact a personal vendetta against the police.

Character profiles

A detective with the Malmö Police, Saga is a hardcore investigator who is socially challenged. But she’s a damn good cop who follows the rule book to the letter. At first, Saga has problems with the more impulsive Martin, but in the end, he becomes a mentor for her – and her first real friend.

Detective for the Copenhagen Police, Martin is a likeable, but flawed hero. He thrives on chaos, and that drives Saga crazy. After an infidelity, Martin starts to reconnect with his wife and family and realises that he has a lot more to lose than he thought.

“Saga and Martin are why I love The Bridge. They are the dysfunctional heart that tempers its cruelty” – Rebecca Nicholson, The Guardian.

“A Bridge too far? Not a bit of it…” – Caroline Frost, The Huffington Post.
