Conversational News: A man who has no interesting in watching The Killing – or any other Scandinavian TV drama – was forced to sit silently throughout a dinner party.

Keiran Marlow, 35, was unable to join in any part of the conversation throughout the four hour-long meal, as he has never seen – and never intends to see any episodes of The Killing, Borgen, The Bridge or Wallander.

“I couldn’t even feign interest in them to be honest,” said Marlow. “I appreciate people enjoy the gritty realism of the Scandinavian crime thrillers, but it’s just something I don’t share. I’ve not got a problem with reading subtitles, I just find people solving crimes in minus twenty degree temperatures a bit overrated.”

Marlow almost spoke at one stage in the evening, when one of his fellow diners asked if everyone had watch the final episode of series two of The Killing.

Says Marlow, “I was tempted to yell out ‘Spoiler alert guys! – just kidding, I neither know or care about what the detective in the jumper has been up to’. I didn’t though, I just pushed the smoked salmon around on my plate.”
