Prime Minster Birgitte Nyborg’s diplomatic skills are tested when she offers to negotiate a peace agreement between two sides embroiled in a bloody African civil war. It’s a big leap for Birgitte, but she’s stung by spin doctor Kasper’s implied criticism of her government’s lame-duck inactivity.
It sounds a deadly premise for a two-part story (there’s a “To Be Continued” at the end of the first hour, so try to stay awake if you’re watching in real time). But it ends up being quite thrilling. And you can give your eyes a bit of a rest from peering at subtitles because Birgitte speaks English a lot as she tries to hammer out a deal between two intractable leaders. As always, dogging her footsteps are ridiculous TV journalists Katrine and Hanne, who are turning into Scooby-Doo’s Daphne and Velma. They unearth A Big Story. Zoinks!
Part one of two. Opinion polls indicate that Birgitte is likely to lose the next election, and she becomes desperate to find a popular cause. After hearing about a referendum on secession in the Central African country of Kharun that threatens to send the country into a civil war, she sees a chance to broker peace in the conflict and gain popularity for herself. Danish drama, starring Sidse Babett Knudsen, Birgitte Hjort Sorensen and Pilou Asbaek.
