I stand by my criticism of the American version of The Bridge. Unfortunately, it didn't get any better. It actually got worse.
I just finished watching the 11th episode of it, which is where the story line of the Swedish/Danish version ends. There are still two more episodes of the American series left (perhaps FX Canada is one episode behind the Americans?), but I expect them to be just as bad as the others.
I'm just glad I watched the Swedish/Danish version first.
Warning: I'm not playing with a full deck.
