Psychiatric nurse Pat bought a house in Stoneybatter, Dublin, 23 years ago with the intention of it being a ‘stepping-stone’ home, but the Tralee man fell in love with the area and never wanted to leave. A keen entertainer, Pat is desperate to revamp his home so that he can start inviting his friends over, something he has stopped doing. In this 50sq metre cottage Pat knows that he needs to de-clutter.The designers look at ways to create clever storage solutions with invisible walls and fold -down dining tables.
The widely-acclaimed 10-part Danish series begins, as a female body is found in the middle of the Øresund Bridge that links Sweden and Denmark. In a macabre twist, police discover that half the body belongs to a Swedish politician and the other half to a Danish prostitute. A bi-national team of inspectors is put together to solve the crime: laid-back Danish family man Martin, and Swedish single woman, Saga, who puts facts above empathy. The clever killer is a “moral terrorist,” who lays out his agenda in messages addressed to the media and designed to show us how corrupt we have become. Indeed, the spectacular murders he stages actually do bring public opinion to his side. The lead detectives begin to suspect that it could be a personal vendetta perpetrated by someone from their own ranks.
