Competition: Win ‘Salamander’ *closed*

Having already seen massive success with their Bafta-winning series The Bridge, The Killing and Borgen, Arrow Films are thrilled to announce the home entertainment release of BBC Four hit Salamander, a tense, edge-of-your-seat European thriller which will also be the first Belgian TV show to be housed by their new Noir label. To celebrate the release of Salamander this coming Monday (17 March), we have THREE DVD copies of the gritty Belgian drama to offer our noir aficionado readership, courtesy of the series’ UK distributors Arrow Films. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Everyone has secrets. But some secrets can bring down a nation. In a private Brussels bank, 66 safe deposit boxes are raided. The owner of the bank wants to keep the thefts under wraps but police inspector Paul Gerardi (Filip Peeters) catches wind of the affair. With his incorruptible, old school morals and devil-may-care attitude, Gerardi throws himself into the investigation, and when some of the key players are murdered, commit suicide or vanish, soon realises just how big the case is. Gerardi discovers that the victims are members of a secret organisation called Salamander, made up of the country’s industrial, financial, judicial and political elite, and the safe deposit boxes contained their most intimate secrets.

To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE copies of Salamander on DVD, just answer the following simple question:

Which of the following detectives is the nation of Belgium also famous for?

a) Jacques Clouseau
b) Salvo Montalbano
c) Hercule Poirot
