Never before has Danish drama travelled so much. We are delighted to present some of our award-winning series featuring the best directors and casts in Scandinavia.
The series are among the best ever produced for television.
In Denmark, a special unit is set up to fight cross-border crime across Scandinavia and to establish operational links with similar teams around the world.
In Copenhagen, charismatic detective Hallgrim Hallgrimsson puts together a team of crimefighters equipped with the most advanced technology and high-tech weapons. Called “The Eagle” for his unerring intuition, Hallgrimsson exudes competence and self-assurance; but behind the dynamic facade is a tormented personality…
Similarly to the mythical figure of Odysseus, Hallgrimsson is a seeker. His travels throughout Scandinavia and continental Europe lead him not only to new dangers and deadly traps, but also to anguishing confrontations with his own past. Like Odysseus, he too makes many detours as he tries to elude his inner demons rather than battle them and to postpone the end of a journey that might hold nothing but emptiness and despair.
As varied as the cases are the international locations in Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Germany, France, Russia and the Netherlands, which give the series a truly cosmopolitan flair. Moreover, each episode is given a special look and feel through the use of a different film director and director of photography.
