Terrified of discovery, Jake hid and watched Hanne get into a car, leaving behind her diary. When another murder victim is found in the woods, Jake realizes that Hanne herself is in danger, and his only choice is to find and warn her so that together, they can stop the killer before he strikes again.

Tony Hill a psychologist who finds himself entangled in some seriously gruesome crimes and even more gruesome people behind them. There are six seasons and the first episode of season 1 perfectly sets the tone for just how unsavory these crimes are going to be. The fact that Dr. Branagh has a certain kind of water colored torture permanently imprinted on his face that makes him perfect for the recently divorced, very sad, yet emotionally disconnected detective he plays.
The crimes are typically Scandinavian meaning decidedly more creepy than your standard American fare and the villains a little more desperate than usual, but the cinematography is GORGEOUS, Branagh obviously a very intelligent actor and the sum of all parts makes for a good rainy afternoon with a hot toddy viewing.
Season 2 deals with the Brothers Kray, and season 3 is less focused on obvious sensationalist cold cases and therefore, to me, the most effective. A second season is rumored, with a brand new, as-yet-unknown case. It is breezy fare, and the mysteries are not anywhere as challenging as those solved by the Sherlocks of the world but it is done well and harkens back to a simpler time where murders were solved in libraries and green fields, instead of torture chambers and such. If you like the two leads and enjoy your mysteries grittier — we recommend checking out Norton in Happy Valley and Green in the new classic Wire in the Blood.
Bonus: Miss Fisher is played by Essie Davis who is uncannily reminiscent of a young Diana Rigg, a fact that should not be lost of at least some of the men reading this I hope. It sounds hokey, but it is truly dark, wonderfully acted, and heartbreaking from a certain feminist standpoint too. Final season is now finally available.

Then, of course, there is Miss Marple. The likes of Colin Firth, and other British stage and screen mainstays pop-up, sealing in the prestige of the production. The show equivalent of your favorite low fuss dinner-always satisfying, never too demanding. Nothing supernatural happening here necessarily, but it is all the more deeply, profoundly disturbing for it.
Bonus: Agent Cooper is truly the only purely good leading man that is also not boring at all. Just think about it. And her friends are acting all weird.
