Trivia

The building used as the Government Building is actually the headquarters of Statoil's international operations, Norway's, and one of the world's, largest oil companies. It's placed using CGI in the center of Oslo, next to the opera, but in reality is some 10 km (6 miles) away, at the location of the former main airport of Oslo, Fornebu. The use of the building is an intended pun from the producers, as the government party is green and anti-oil. See more »

Intriguing and revealing
6 December 2015 | by tom-boers-32See all my reviews

I have watched this series till the 4th episode so I can't comment on the whole storyline. The start on the other hand is very promising: it shows a low level form of 'occupation' of Norway by a foreign nation on bequest of the EU (this is not a very likely situation, given the state of the EU, but okay ....). What makes it very much believable are the dilemma's that are increasing facing the main characters of this series.

It is very well filmed and the actors are very well chosen and all act to their hearts content. Although I don't understand a word of Norwegian (I'm Dutch) and had to do with very poor subtitles I thought the story was very well written as well.

So try to get a version with good subtitles and enjoy this series!!
