Now that the “Swedish Wallander series two” is over I am tempted to try some of the Scandinavian crime series DVD sets that are available with English sub-titles. It is one of the very clever marketing ploys on the Amazon website that if you feed in a search for example an Irene Huss DVD a selection of Scandinavian temptations appears the next time you visit the site.

Maybe BBC 4 will expand their present tentative exploration of crime series from Europe [Spiral, Wallander, two Montalbano episodes] and regularly schedule sub-titled crime fiction series throughout the year.

    >Do they have English subtitles, Norman? I'll buy them if so — but it is never clear to me that they do….sob. I was also tempted by that Rekyavick (sorry about spelling) Noir on Jose Igancio's blog recently, but could not find any indication of English subtitles on the DVD on Amazon….sob again.

  2. >Maxine, I have checked again and it does state that they all have English sub titles. The cost ranges from £65.93 for the Irene Huss set, to £30.99 for the Varg Veum. I am very tempted. ;o)
