Recent French adaptations of non-“Maigret” works by Belgian author Georges Simenon are on their way to American telly. Ain’t life fantastique!
Good news, stateside Nordic noir fans. That taste we had of the Swedish crime drama series Camilla Läckberg’s Fjällbacka Murders earlier this year is about to be a five-course treat.
Allons-y! No, not across time and space (Doctor Who returns later this year), but to Kabul, Afghanistan, the setting for the hit French comedy, Kaboul Kitchen.
Commissario Brunetti. This terrific German series with the titular Italian lead character is being re-aired on American telly starting this weekend. Fantastisch!
Agent. Operative. Spook. Call him what you want, but Swedish super-spy Carl Hamilton is back on telly, this time in the Mikael Håfström-directed Vendetta.
Get ready for some serious action, my Euro TV friends, because Torpedo, a four-part miniseries from award-winning director, Trygve Allister Diesen, is going to blow you away.
