Political power cannot be won without sacrifice. Birgitte Nyborg wins a landslide victory for her party, but how far is she willing to go to gain influence? Can she succeed professionally, continue to lead a happy family life, and stay true to herself? Borgen (Government) is an award-winning Danish drama series about the fight for political power and the personal consequences for everyone involved.
Here's what you may have missed
Both Birgitte and Katrine tackle dilemmas endemic to their professions: The PM has to decide which political ally to align itself with, while the journalist has to decide whether to pursue a story that puts her and her source's lives in danger.
As Birgitte becomes a better prime minister, she turns into a worse wife in her husband's eyes.
