There’s a lozenge of wisdom before every
episode – something profound by Bertrand Russell prefaces this one. But it might as well say “Be careful what you wish for” after Prime Minister Birgitte’s attempts to bring a wayward colleague into line backfire spectacularly.
She’s having trouble with her environment minister, but when she asks her unpleasant spin-doctor Kasper to have a little word in the right ears the government looks like it might topple.
Kasper persuades Birgitte to use underhand tactics as the government prepares to negotiate the environmental element of the new reform package, and Katrine receives a job offer that goes against her personal beliefs. Meanwhile, the prime minister's children are affected by their mother's work-related stress. Drama, starring Sidse Babett Knudsen, Birgitte Hjort Sorensen and Pilou Asbaek. In Danish.
