Velkommen to the world of "Borgen," where triple-barrel names like Birgitte Nyborg Christinsen (the show's main character) meet Birgitte Hjort Sørensen (the actress who plays one of the main characters). That's a lot of Danish flying around, even with subtitles to tell you what people's names are. To make it a little easier to tell who's who and what they do on the show, we're posting this character list. We'll be updating it as the show goes along. Warning: There are minor spoilers for the first episode.
