Makes me want to visit Denmark
6 July 2015 | by raquelapenaSee all my reviews

I truly enjoyed this show on Netflix and I didn't get enough. It is very different television than we have here in the U.S. They are more open and accepting of different lifestyles. Rita's character is very complex and I love her. She does so many things wrong and breaks rules in an effort to do the right thing for the school children. She is a teacher that truly cares for the kids she teaches but she isn't the best mother. This show reminds me of Nurse Jackie which is an excellent show on Showtime (Cable here in the US). I learned a little about their school system and their culture and it made me want to visit Denmark. After watching all 3 season I want to know if there will be more to come.
