However, while Sofia Helin returns as Swedish detective Saga Noren, Kim Rhodia will not reprise his role as her Danish counterpart, Martin Rohde.

Instead, a new team of police officers will have to solve a crime in the Öresund region that separates Denmark and Sweden. In season one, Noren and Rohde united to solve a murder mystery after a body was found on the Öresund bridge.

Filming is due to begin in September and it will premiere on DR1 and SVT in autumn 2015.

Bron/Broen is produced by Nimbus Film and Filmlance and is a collaboration between DR and SVT.

The series has been adapted in the US as The Bridge and also inspired British/French collaboration The Tunnel.
