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 by Lars Von Trier is set in the neurosurgical ward of Copenhagen’s Rigshospitalet, the country’s main hospital, nicknamed Riget – where bizarre phenomena occurs, human as supernatural.

It is notable for its wry humor, its muted sepia colour scheme and the appearance of a chorus of dishwashers with Downs Syndrome who discuss in intimate detail the strange occurrences in the hospital.
