Dear ladies and gents,
a while back I did a post about Scandinavian shows. And a lot of people have been asking where these shows can be viewed.
So I tried to dig up as much information as possible to compile it all in one post and divide the links by countries. By all means if you have any additional info, please feel free to share it in the comments and I do hope you will find this post useful.
Almost all of the Scandinavian shows in the UK can be seen on BBC Four. Here is an update from BBC Media centre on all the upcoming shows that will air in the near future (if you can’t be bothered to click, it includes Borgen (season 3), The Bridge (season 2) and Arne Dahl (more details about the series can be found at the production page).
For people outside of UK, google Film on TV (but do take into consideration the time difference). And that is all I will say about that.
Some Scandinavian shows are available on Netflix. I am being geo-cock-blocked so I can’t check, soz for that, but what I have gathered from our lovely readers shows that can be streamed on Netflix include The Eagle, The Protectors and the original Killing.
Borgen is available on Link TV (thanks again Cynthia!)
Wallander is available on Amazon
Wallander, the UK version, should be available on PBS.
Irene Huss is available on Amazon
Elinor asked about Annika Bengtzon and here are some of the details I could find on wikipedia. I did contact the production company Yellow Bird regarding distribution channels for some of the stuff they have produced and will update the post once I get the info.
If you would like to check whether you can view some of Scandinavian shows in your domicile countries, it is sometimes useful to look up their wiki pages, as channels where the shows air are listed. See example for The Killing.
