The third policeman Asgeir? is hiding something as well.

A bicycle?
Wrong island. That's a 'c', not an 'r'.  ;)

How do Icelanders get angry with each other when they have to use given names all the time?  But anyway...

I'm afraid that since this post I've been thinking of him as the only TV copper ever named after a bicycle transmission - Osgear.

I shoul have realised that cut-price Ted Danson impersonator Guðni was a wrong 'un.  He drove an Audi 4x4.

When this thread title popped up on my "unread" screen, I was hoping it was a plea for help from a YACF-er trapped in a lift with nothing but a packet of Smarties, a small penknife, and an internet connection.

I'm beginning to ask my wife: "Who's she?" And: "Is she the one who was bonking?" "Which one's Guirmunder?"

We now never watch programmes with this amount of intellectual challenge in real time.  The recorder starts up at the beginning of the episode, and we start watching about a minute later, with lots of rewinding to answer those annoying little questions about whether we saw her with him 5 minutes ago and was the arsonist holding (a) an ice pick (b) a shovel (c) a walking stick.  We can usually make out the men from the women, but finer differentiation requires more investigation with the rewinder. 
Oh thank god it's not just us! Although I very rarely resort to the pause/rewind option, it just seems so ... wrong. I do tend to struggle on, with urgent whispered questions to my - long-suffering - partner. Perhaps if digi-recorders had been invented before my birth I'd be more pragmatic!

Anyhoo: about two episodes in here. Quite enjoying it overall - it's not gripping, but is nicely devoid of many tired scandi/crime/BBC4/middle-class ponce slot  cliches.
