Prepare for DR’s latest thrilling series which premieres on UK screens next weekend!
It has been announced that the new crime series from Denmark, Follow the Money, starring Bo Larsen (Festen, 1998, The Hunt, 2012) and Nikolaj Lie Kaas (Brothers, 2004, The Keeper of Lost Causes, 2013) is the next Nordic Noir to arrive on BBCFour!
When a corpse is found near a wind farm in Denmark, a police investigation is launched into the disturbing discovery which points to the environmentally-friendly energy organisation known as Energreen. Mads (Larsen) heads the case as he probes dubious Energreen CEO Alexander (Lie Kaas), who is also being investigated internally without his knowledge. Advertised as “one of the most successful companies in Denmark”, the rising power of Energreen is set to dominate the more than the Danish landscape. It soon becomes clear that there are suspicious goings-on behind the picture-perfect projection of Energreen’s façade. The company’s revered image is scrutinised for being embroiled in corruption when ex-convict Nicky (Esben Smed) gets caught up in the middle of the fraudulent scheme.
Written by Jeppe Gjervig Gram, whose credits include the politically charged DR series Borgen (2010-2013), the story centres around three simultaneous strands which intertwine to keep audiences on edge as the money trail draws to a nail-biting end. Follow the Money premiered to Danish audiences on New Year’s Day, generating over 1.2 million viewers who tuned in for the first episode. The Head of Drama at DR, Piv Bernth, shares the success of the series launch in Denmark: “We are so proud of the series. It’s a complicated plot and story, with many new characters and the Danish audience and critics embraced them all.”
As Trapped reaches its blustery conclusion with the final back-to-back episodes this weekend, our insatiable appetite for Nordic Noir will be transported from the rural region of Iceland to the dark heart of an urban conspiracy in Denmark next week!
Follow the Money flutters onto our screens on Saturday 19th March at 9pm on BBCFour
