“Remember darling, if in doubt with social conversation, switch the subject to gardening. ‘My Californian poppy is really coming on this year despite the chalky soil – such fun!'”
The second season of Danish drama Dicte received its UK premiere on More4 on Friday July 7th. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Contemporary story lines, multiple female characters, a touch of family drama along side interesting crimes.
In season two Dicte is contacted by her father who she has been estranged from for many years and a sudden tragic turn of events finds her investigating a prostitution ring, diamond smuggling and a hit-and-run that not only links them but will bring the unknown, the unpredictable and the deadly into the lives of Dicte and police investigator John Wagner.
From football hooliganism and match fixing to sado-masochism and murder, missing children and a mother’s lost love, Dicte is a brash, quick-witted reporter, who is not afraid to take risks or put her own life in danger. Even if it means straying to the wrong side of the law or jeopardising every relationship in her life, Dicte will stop at nothing to uncover the truth. Dicte Crime Reporter Season Two features five gripping stories told over 10 episodes – Dreams and Diamonds, Passion and Chains, Presence and Absence, Goals and Means, Law and Duty – drawn from the crime novels of bestselling Danish author Elsebeth Egholm (The Free Women's Club).You can read our review of Season 1 here You can buy the DVDs here
