Theme Time : Choir Of Young Believers - The Bridge

A deep depression developed within me on Saturday night as the final two parts of Borgen, the sublime Danish political drama were screened on BBC4.

The final two parts ever.

I am so going to miss that show.

However, the depression was alleviated almost immediately with news that I shall get my Scandinavian drama fix once more from BBC4 in the new year, as they commence screening of the long awaited second series of the Danish/Swedish crime thriller The Bridge from the 4th January.

I loved this show and so to celebrate, here's the brilliantly atmospheric theme tune from Choir Of Young Believers, Hollow Talk

Choir of Young Believers is the musical project of Danish singer, Jannis Noya Makrigiannis. The band consists of Makrigiannis, along with a rotating cast of supporting players. Very popular in Denmark, they have had a string of No 1 hits and won 'Best new Act' at 2009's Danish Music Awards. The musical style combines folk melodies, orchestral instrumentations and dark lyrics.

The Bridge itself has subsequently been remade for American/Mexican television and British/French television too as The Bridge and The Tunnel respectively. But if you ask me, except no imitations. The original will always be the best.
