Storyline

On a rainy October morning, fifteen Danes have their lives turned upside down when the metro train they are traveling on is hijacked by unknown perpetrators, who will threaten to kill each of them, one by one, if their demands aren't met. This is the beginning of a historic hostage situation that, over the course of one single week, changes Denmark forever. The official Denmark finds itself caught in a whirlwind. The politicians argue whether or not to negotiate with terrorists. In the press, there are discussions on where the line is drawn in portraying the captives and seeking out their families. Ordinary Danes are thinking that it could just as well have been them. Among the hostages, the thoughts vary between rebellion, negotiation and apathy, but one thought is shared by all: "Am I going to die now?"

Just one area of real weakness, otherwise a GREAT drama
15 January 2020 | by pjp88029See all my reviews

15.Jan, 2020: Fantastic, gripping 8 episodes series, 45 minutes each, Totally Binge-Worthy, currently available with a HULU basic subscription. Especially if you LOVE dramas with deep, complex character development, and twists you never would have guessed. Excellent Acting by all of the cast, but especially by Paprika Steen, as an investigative journalist. No Tenth Star due to 'muddy' editing and storyline flow with the past and present scenes of so many of the actors; a Tenth star would have been given if Dates Text boxes had been inserted with the jumping back and forth.
