DICTE: CRIME RE­PORTER SEA­SON 2 Acorn, cert 18 DVD 2-disc set £24.99 DEN­MARK’s smartest in­ves­tiga­tive jour­nal­ist brings home the ba­con with an­other sexy mix of crime and pas­sion that en­joyed a sec­ond suc­cess­ful sea­son here on More4. In fact Dicte has be­come such a hit for the coun­try that brought us the The Killing and Bor­gen that a third se­ries is be­ing filmed. If other re­porters won­der how Dicte (Iben Hje­jle – pic­tured) gets all the hottest scoops, her close re­la­tion­ship with de­tec­tive John Wagner (Lars Bryg­mann), who seems un­able to crack cases with­out her atomic blonde con­tri­bu­tion, pro­vides a clue. Not that Wagner’s in the ro­man­tic frame, Dicte’s pas­sion­ate af­fair with pho­tog­ra­pher Bo Skytte (Dar Salim) is pos­i­tively blaz­ing. But, prob­lems with her re­bel­lious daugh­ter Rose tend to get in the way and more fam­ily dif­fi­cul­ties emerge when her es­tranged fa­ther ar­ranges a meet­ing be­cause he has im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion for her. But he ends up in a coma fol­low­ing a hit-and-run ac­ci­dent. Why he tried to build bridges haunts Dicte as he fights for life through much of the se­ries. Mean­while, there are crimes to be cracked and cases in­volve di­a­mond smug­gling, a miss­ing child, and match fix­ing in foot­ball. Dicte’s fans will be de­lighted.
