The Killing II was entertaining enough but not a patch on Sarah Lund's first outing. Then Borgen came along, it's premise, rather dire - a drama centred around Danish politics. But although it did what it said on the tin, once the lid was off, the contents were thrilling. The relationships were intriguing, the characters were all brilliantly formed and perfectly acted and every episode was packed with chewy plot that was easily digestible and incredibly moreish. I cannot wait for season 2.
In the meantime though, here are some more Danish drama's that the clever people with the money at BBC4 have kindly bought with our license fee.
