Storyline

Nissebanden i Grønland was 1989's popular addition to the Danish tradition of televised Christmas calendars - a story of Christmas in 24 episodes, from the 1st to the 24th of December. At their traditional December 1st party, a group of special agent Christmas elves are sent for by Santa Claus himself. They travel to Greenland to help secure the production and delivery of the Christmas presents while Santa leaves to find two meteor stones which, according to legend, are magic wish stones with dark powers. Meanwhile, the inhabitants of a small Danish community are planning a shrewd move to make Santa come and live in their town! Written by Peter Brandt Nielsen

A fine series
4 February 2008 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is what is called a "Christmas calendar" in Denmark. It is a series, which only runs at Christmas. 24 episodes. One episode each day from December 1st to December 24th.

This is "Nissebanden i Grønland", a classic for any Dane who was born in and around the 1980ties. Its all about this gang of "nisser" (a form of leprechauns or Santa's elves), who have to travel to Greenland. Its also about a mystery of a fallen star, which can give the owner magic powers.

The episodes aren't that well written. Its things you have seen in so many other series before. The same moral-lecture.

But it still funny to watch, at least for nostalgic value. Its all in all a very fine series. But nothing more.
