Take a bite out of Apple and watch Sidse Babett Knudsen’s rise to power in the entire series of this electrifying Nordic drama
Cited as a favourite show of US presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton, Borgen (2010-2013) has been applauded for its depiction of an effective campaign process at the height of the UK general elections. During the intoxicating wave of Scandi crime series entertaining us from the likes of The Killing (2007-2012), Borgen launched the Nordic drama into a new level of popularity.
The BAFTA award-winning programme created by Adam Price (The Saboteurs, 2015) begins with Birgitte Nyborg (Knudsen) vying for the role of Prime Minister. We follow her relentless struggle through a political web of manipulation and deceit as her career ambitions clash with her family life. With each season we are presented with a different version of Birgitte as her character evolves over the course of her turbulent parliamentary reign; experiencing exultant successes and catastrophic failures.
The series stars a host of recognisable Danish faces from film and television: Sidse Babett Knudsen (1864, 2014 and After the Wedding, 2006), Birgitte Hjort Sørensen (In Order of Disappearance, 2014), Pilou Asbæk (1864, 2014 and A Hijacking, 2012), Mikael Birkkjær (The Killing II, 2009 and Aftermath, 2004) and Søren Malling (1864, 2014 and The Killing I, 2007).
