Wow, was a complex story to follow. Good acting, nice performances. Storyline had a few holes in it, but artistic license is a good excuse, and there were only a couple or so. There was some glossy stylised terrorism scenes, they do add to the tension, but those can be ignored if it isn't your bag. Something that cant be ignored is the violence. Not that there is too much of it, but it i designed to pull you in emotionally and it certainly does do that. By the end of it I found myself both liking the main terrorist char, but also hating him. And the series does that all the way through with most of the characters,they are quite complicated chars.
Overall a little lightweight compared to The Bridge (9/10 for me), but weightier than Borgen (7/10)
Strange ending considering there isn't a 2nd series and nothing is planned.
See for yourself, worth spending your time on though,
