In this season, fans watch Birgitte
Nyborg (Sidse Babett Knudsen) in her
second term as Denmark's first female prime minister. Politically, she has
succeeded in earning the respect of her allies as well as her enemies, but
tensions between parties are mounting, and Birgitte is forced to make more and
more shaky compromises. The growing pressure causes her to doubt whether she
can maintain both her position and her integrity. The ambitious and idealistic
television journalist Katrine Fønsmark is now working as a star journalist at
the Ekspres, where editor-in-chief, Michael
Laugesen, challenges her journalistic morals. Kasper Juul continues his
professional role as the cynical spin doctor for Birgitte Nyborg. Privately he
is trying to make peace with his inner demons and keep them from
sabotaging his relationship with a new girlfriend.
