Nordic Noir: The Rise of Scandi Drama

Scandinavian drama has become a phenomenon, the forefront of TV excellence. In this documentary we trace the effects of many of the Scandinavian series (e.g. Borgen, The Killing, The Bridge, Wallander and Lilyhammer) that have had an impact around the world. We discover how and why Scandinavian stories and characters have become ambassadors of the Scandinavian culture.
Through exclusive interviews with some of TV’s most celebrated talent, the documentary unravels the mystique of Nordic Noir and analyses what makes Scandinavian stories stand out and the characters so gripping.
