Thursday, 8.30pm, FX Surely the American version of this mesmerising police drama couldn’t be as good as the original Danish-Swedish version? Well, despite my snotty misgivings, I have to admit the Americans have done a sensational job. The story, with its contemporary theme, is worth watching again. It’s sufficiently different that you stay engaged and the really big plus is you don’t have to stay glued to the screen to follow the subtitles. As in the Scandinavian series, a body is found straddling the centre of a bridge — in this case the Bridge of the Americas, which serves as a border crossing between Texas and Mexico. Corruption, apathy and powerful drug cartels dog the investigation by two mismatched detectives — Sonya (Diane Kruger) from the El Paso side and Marco (Demian Bichir) from Juarez — as they pursue the killer. The series arrives here only two hours after it airs in the US. Tonight the team tracks down a prime suspect.
