Jonathan Goldberg (noirlitusa) | 23 comments So technically not Nordic, but a great noir series was recently added to Netflix in the US called The Forest. Very good series in beautiful scenery. Takes place in the Ardennes, the scene of some of the worst WWII bloodshed during the Battle of the Bulge. Anyway, the series takes place now so has nothing to do with WWII. I happen to enjoy small town or village mysteries, esp when the scenery is fantastic. This one is exactly that. Great acting and very good quality production. Well worth the 6 episode watch.

It was good and very similar to a Scandinavian series....that we had watched earlier. There are so many similar International dramas currently on Netflix. But almost all very good.......

Jonathan Goldberg (noirlitusa) | 23 comments Yes agreed Sharon. And not just Netflix. If you include Amazon, Acorn and MhZ, there so many great mystery series on from all over the world. This has to be the greatest time ever for tv.

Fans of Gillian Flynn’s book and film GONE GIRL and her earlier book SHARP OBJECTS will enjoy the good cast, headed up by Amy Adams of the 8 part series currently on demand HBO with an episode weekly. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sharp...

Jonathan Goldberg (noirlitusa) | 23 comments I've been wondering if Tatort: Borowski was any good. I always see ads for it from MHz. I'll check it out. Thanks Bobbi.

Terrific clip. I’ve never used tumblr - is this a subscription service?
