Mammon is a Nordic Noir thriller series in the spirit of “All the President’s Men”. However, not all journalists are fully committed to the truth, with personal agendas clouding judgements.
Peter Verås is an uncompromising journalist at the most respected newspaper in Norway. He makes the biggest mistake of his life after obtaining evidence of financial fraud from an anonymous source that points to his own brother, with horribly tragic consequences for Peter and his family. A search for the truth ignites, involving the media, high-ranking politicians as well as the financial elite. The closer Peter gets to the truth the further he places himself squarely in danger’s path, but he has come too far to back down now…
