The initial idea behind The Bridge was to create a series to be broadcast simultaneously in Sweden and Denmark. The team of actors and filmmakers would consist of both Swedes and Danes. A number of years later, success has become reality and the series has travelled around the whole world, meeting with praise from both viewers and critics. The Bridge has become an integration project in the world of fiction, with Hans Rosenfeldt as the lead writer.

"A non-existent Malmö" is produced in in collaboration with Filmlance, the production company behind The Bridge.

News September 1, 2016:

It is now decided that it will be a fourth season of The Bridge! It means that the production team needs some of the objects shown in the exhibition. The last day of the exhibition to be shown in its current format is therefore Sunday 2 October 2016.
