Character Bio

Elise Wassermann photo
Elise Wassermann, the French detective and Roebuck's opposite. Wasserman's role parallels to that of Saga Norén (played by 'Sofia Helin'), the Swedish detective in The Bridge. Elise shares similar mannerisms to Saga, including behaviour consistent with Asperger syndrome, driving a Porsche and picking up men from bars for casual sex.

The innate seriousness of the character was a trait that Poésy found "quite annoying", but the actress came to appreciate Elise's honesty. Both Dillane and Poésy opted not to view the Scandinavian original series, with the latter stating that it would allow her more freedom in interpreting the character. Poésy dubbed her English lines for the French broadcast.
