Storyline

In this gripping new Norwegian thriller series, Peter Veras is an uncompromising journalist working for Norway's most respected newspaper. While pursuing the story of a scandal in the financial world, he gets hold of crushing evidence against his own brother from an anonymous source. He makes the biggest mistake in his life when he has the story published. Peter cannot prevent his brother from committing suicide, shattering the lives of Peter's sister-in-law Eva and 16-year-old nephew Andreas. In a feverish attempt to track down the anonymous source, Peter is finally successful, but the discovery is devastating: the source was his own brother.

User Reviews

 
Nordic Noir is not dead!

Nordic Noir genre is alive and kicking as Norwegians prove with this excellent addition to a whole bunch of quality entertainment based on Scandinavian crime fiction. I enjoyed season 1 of ''Mammon'' but I thought that it was a rather poor production, kind of a tv series''b-movie''. Nevertheless it managed to keep the viewer glued to his seat due to its intricate plot and notable actor performances, mainly by Jon Øigarden and Nils Ole Oftebro as two journalists of VG newspaper, one of the most popular ones in Norway. Season 2 though was close to perfection. Great actors joined the cast like Trond Espen Seim, Ingar Helge Gimle, Anders Danielsen Lie and others, with the first two being marvelous in their roles as frenemies in the country's governing party, often adding a comic touch to the tightly-woven, elaborate plot. The story begins with the murder of one of VG's prime journalists and unfolds in a nice, steady pace, leaving no questions unanswered in the end. The plot consists of shady politicians, corrupt lawyers, femme fatales and has every ingredient of a superb television production. Nordic Noir fans are bound to love ''Mammon'' and the finale will leave them begging for more.
