I am quite enjoying this!

The US one? Me too!

The end of the series is a bit crap but I admit I enjoyed it too. I heard Fincher is directing Season 2? If so, it should be excellent.

Ooh, really? Interesting. I haven't seen the Danish one yet but will be catching up with it when it's repeated, and suspect that that's the right way round to watch them; a lot of people say the original is better. Have either of you seen it and if so do you agree?

I have seen the Danish version and I loved it. I like the US version for what it is but I have the Danish characters in my head and have to block that out to take the US one on its own merit.

At last some other people who liked it! I love Holder- he's really growing on me.

DH got bored of it about halfway through because he doesn't like things that aren't fast paced but I thought it was very well done, especially as a remake.

It is one of the few series that I have gone 'nooooooooo' when the credits come up at the end. I love a good cliffhanger! I saw the Danish box set in the dvd shop yesterday and was very tempted to get it and lock myself in for the weekend!

wahwah save your ££ - the Danish series 1 is being re-shown on a nightly basis - from this Sunday - on the Beeb!

I've watched the US one, would I still enjoy the Danish one?
Cliffhanger KILLED me.

teejwood Fri 19-Aug-11 13:24:33

string i didn't watch the US one as I had enjoyed the Danish one so much but maybe fatshion could advise you? I understand the endings were different in the two versions...

Thanks teej

It's getting good...

thanks for your opinions I think I shall persever with both versions....oh its just fnding the time....but I do think the Danish one is pacier!

wahwahwah Fri 26-Aug-11 14:45:29

But don't they have different endings? I am on holiday next week - can someone PLEASE tell me if Bennet is dead? Please please please - it will drive me nuts!

Balls - just read a site about the Danish version. OK so the names are different but I get the jist.

I think this is the best thing that has been on television in years. I'm so glad BBC are repeating it. I tried watching the American version but just can't seem to get into it. Roll on series two.

I am halfway through the re-run of the the Danish version on BBC4 and it is absolutely the best thing I have seen on TV in a long time, I am totally gripped and still no idea how this is going to end. Haven't watched the US one and am glad I have seen the Danish one first.

I'm also recording/watching the Danish version on BBC4, I'm a few episodes behind but intend to watch some more tonight. I'm really enjoying it. Plus the jumpers are just splendid.

I am also really enjoying hearing them speak Danish, it is not a language I am at all familiar with but is nice to listen too!

another one totally hooked. Every character has a dark side! Even super brainy DS1 who always knows whodunnit in the first episode of most things sits there enthralled.
