Scandi tip #9: Borgen

Picture from

I find it fascinating that the Brits are so fascinated with Scandinavian fiction at the moment. First it was Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series, then Jo Nesbø’s books about Harry Hole, then the Danish television series The Killing and now another Danish series on telly; Borgen.

The series have already started on BBC4 but you can always catch up on the iPlayer.

This series is about the female prime minister of Denmark Brigitte Nyborg and her rise to the post and how the power changes her. The series is from 2010 and has already won two European awards and is critically acclaimed, just like the Killing.
