Denmark 1850. Tinke, a 9-year-old orphan from the wilderness, struggles to find her unknown, rich grandparents. She comes from nothing and finally gets everything, but - Tinke isn't Cinderella. Tinke is more than that."

Absalons Hemmelighed, is what we in Denmark refer to as a "Julekalender". Directly translated it means Christmas calender.
It is a series in 24 episodes that is sent every day at the same time from December 1th to December 24th. Where the mystery or plot is revealed.
Absalons Hemmelighed is about a teenage girl and her little sister who is very sick from a decease that can't be cured. In the 24 episodes the girl... (forgot her name, sorry =)) goes looking for the secret of Absalon, which is the name of the Christmas series.
I thought it was a bit boring in the beginning, but when I watched 13 or more episodes right after each other on the 26th it all came clear to me. It actually was a great plot, one that you don't figure out until the last couple of shows.
