Satur­day Black Lake 9pm, BBC Four

Sunday Herald Life - - TV & RADIO -

EX­CIT­ING news for mem­bers of BBC Four’s Satur­day Night Sub­ti­tles Posse: after a long wait, the sixth se­ries of Spi­ral is set to be­gin on French TV next week­end. Still no news of when it will land here, but it can’t be much longer. Surely? In the mean­time, this eight-part se­ries from Swe­den de­parts slightly from the usual crime beat, mov­ing closer to hor­ror movie. A group of good-look­ing young friends have trav­elled to a re­mote, aban­doned ski lodge. The re­sort has been derelict for 20 years, and one of them has plans to buy it and do it up. But there are bad vibes res­onat­ing around the place, pos­si­bly to do with the mass mur­der that took place there two decades be­fore… The don’t-go-in-the-cel­lar clichés come thick and fast, and the body count is sur­pris­ingly small. But it’s pain­less enough, with great snowy scenery, enough in­trigue, and a like­able per­for­mance from Sarah-Sofie Bouss­nina, recog­nis­able from the last se­ries of The Bridge, as the pos­si­bly semi-psy­chic lead.
