Sunday, ABC1, 9.30pm
The Danish/Dan Swedish co-production The Bridge won over audiences with its dark and cryptic narrative and this crime drama is yet ano another inspired by those talented Scandinavians. An English/French production, The Tunnel begins with theth discovery of a body on the border of the UK and France in the Channel Tunnel. Detectives Karl Roebuck (Stephen Dillane, Game of Thrones) and Elise Wassermann (Clémence Poésy, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, above) are thrust onto the case and into an uneasy partnership. Quickly taking a disturbing turn, it’s soon apparent language isn’t the only barrier between them. A gripping, adrenalin-boosting thrill ride you need to see.
