Jewish star of Scandinavian BBC crime drama The Bridge quit show because of filming in ‘anti-Semitic’ Malmo

Danish actor Kim Bodnia has revealed that one of the reasons why he quit hit show The Bridge was because as a Jew he did not feel safe working in Sweden.

Bodnia played detective Martin Rohde in two seasons of the Scandi-crime show, but after first signing up for a third, he later dropped out.

The 50-year-old had previously cited issues with the script, but has now said his departure was also caused by of the rise of anti-Semitism in Sweden.

    Another great scandinavian show with good directors and actors ,something forever out of reach for the incestuous CBC.

        The American version, ‘The Bridge’ was ok the first season. After that it went off the rails.

      CBC doesn’t care they have PM Shithead and the Liberals to keep sliding over a few bucks here and there. Kinda like my wife giving the kids money now and then “for the grandchildren” (nudge nudge).

    Not safe in the multikulti paradise of Sweden? I’m shocked, shocked!

    No Jewis safe in Sweden. If it isn’t the Koranimals out to get them, it’s the Swedes themselves. Swedes are Europe’s most virulent anti-Semites. Sweden has an entire population predisposed to becoming an islamic state. How fucking lovely!

      Between Adolph Merkel, Fuhrer of the EU, and her hordes of muslim brownshirts, everywhere in the EU is a danger zone.

      Best to just get out of europe and then nuke the whole place.

      As soon as the islamists are done with the Jews, they’ll turn on the ethnic Swedes (and other native Europeans). Canary in the coal mines…
