Valkyrien centers on a doctor who runs an illegal, underground clinic in an old bomb shelter, where he treats criminals, emergency patients, and others who can't or won't seek medical help in a regular hospital.

A mockumentary about comedian Thomas Giertsen, who has everything: Great girlfriend, big house, lots of cash and funny friends. A perfect life? Still he tends to get in trouble. After all; he's always right.

In NOBEL, two stories carefully intertwine as a returning soldier and family man becomes a pawn in a political international game. As the stakes grow higher he is forced to discover just how far one should go in the name of peace.
The life of a family spanning five generations in the 20th century Europe split in half by WW2, centering around the half brothers Barnum and Fred growing up together in Oslo; Barnum with his father, Fred searching for his.
Nicolai Cleve Broch,
This could be considered to be a clone of the Sex and the City type TV series that are scattered in every country. The series revolves around the usual group of Angst ridden friends, trying to find their way in the world, navigating family, relationship and sexuality issues. Of course, being from Scandinavia, the sex is quite graphic, and nudity commonplace. The problem I found with the series is that there was really nothing new. I guess this reinforces the fact that no matter where one is in the world, these problems are all the same. What I found interesting and different however was how the solutions were impacted by the specific culture. From other Norwegian series I have seen, it does appear that the common thread to all of them is discussion of the issue and always a happy resolution. Sad endings, or real life issues don't appear to be the norm. But one has to remember that this is TV, and every country has its own form of fantasy and escapism to portray via TV and movies. It also reminded me a bit of the American series "Friends", where the characters all have average or low paying jobs but were able to afford nice apartments in one of the world's most expensive cities. The series overall is light and entertaining but really nothing special. Doubt it would have any global appeal outside of Scandinavia.
