Storyline

The series follows young reporter Bjarne Madsen in Copenhagen in 1949, a time marked by the aftermath of World War II. Madsen is inexperienced, but enthusiastic; when he gets a hunch of a crime syndicate of black market trade he hunts the story head-first, much to the discomfort of his more conservative newspaper colleagues. However, as Madsen uncovers new elements of the story an older colleague catches interest, and together they venture into the dark side of the big city. Meanwhile, Bjarne's brother returns from America with new ideas of jazz and big money, and they are both drawn to the beauty and talents of young diva Gordan. Written by Peter Brandt Nielsen

Trivia

The series is based on a true story - the case of the spider syndicate is Danish crime history. However, the story is fictionalized, and the conclusion of the plot is not to be considered absolute truth. The credits include this reminder (translated): "Some characters and events in 'Edderkoppen' are inspired by historical people and events, but it is important to stress that the story is fiction and that the characters, as they appear in the series, are fictional."

Intense historical drama
5 November 2014 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

"Edderkoppen" (The Spider) is about post-WW2 Denmark, where black market is a major, criminal factor, and corruption is more widespread that anyone wants to know. It's based on a true story, but the specific people, events etc., are more or less fictive.

Edderkoppen follows a young journalist on a social democratic newspaper, and he discover the black market in Copenhagen. He tries to find out what's going on, and who is the mastermind, but soon he is "trapped in the spiders net". Several plot twists makes the story more intense over time, and the story is much more interesting, that a resume will let you think.
