Saga Norén
Portrayed bySofia Helin
Appears inThe Bridge (Swedish: Bron, Danish: Broen)

Saga Norén is the main character of Danish-Swedish Scandinoir television series The Bridge (Swedish: Bron, Danish: Broen).

Character creation[edit]

The character was initially not written as autistic, rather, the writers started from the idea of a female detective with absolutely no social skills as a counterpart to the more sociable male lead, Martin, as a way to subvert the traditional dreary male lead in detective series [1] In-universe there is no confirmation of Saga being autistic, however Sofia Helin does remark that she considers Saga to have Asperger's [2][3]
