When a body is found in the water near a wind farm, detective Mads is charged with investigating what seems to be an accident. The victim worked at Energreen, one of the most successful energy companies in Denmark lead by charismatic CEO Alexander Sodergren. Does Sodergren know more his employee's death?Written by

Energreen is a company that is tipped to be a leading player in the renewable energies market. Headed by a young, charismatic go getter in the shape of Alexander Sødergren. They are looking to expand even further and hopefully float the stock too for a great mound of cash. The thing is when a thing is too good to be true then it usually isn't.
So when things start to unravel they have alternative tactics to close things down. This can mean paying off the culprits or maybe not. We have the parallel story of the fraud squad, the cops and a mechanic who all get involved in the goings on at this ever so green company. It is a web of intrigue where no prisoners are ever going to be taken.
Now this is Danish so falls nicely into the Nordic Noir genre of which I am a big fan. This has all the usual things you would expect in terms of a high calibre production and excellent acting. Thomas Bo Larsen as Mads, the police lead, is simply superb as the driven man but with marital strife and other problems. The full cast though are all exceptional. I really enjoyed this, so much so that I put off watching the final episode for a torturous three days – finally saw it last night and it keeps the guessing going till the final scene – seriously recommended.
