A gripping Danish/Swedish thriller
20 October 2019 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

As this joint Swedish/Danish thriller opens a lorry is stopped in the Port of Gothenburg; a shootout follows. Later when it is searched a bomb is found; one of two that had been stolen from a NATO base in Greece. It is assumed the second bomb is in Sweden or Denmark. Eva Forsberg of SÄPO, the Swedish Security Service, heads to Copenhagen to liaise her Danish counterparts. Meanwhile Victoria Rahbek, a Danish software engineer, who works for SparrowSat; a Swedish company specialising in drone technology as is part of a team working on the BAT; a next generation drone flight controller. Is kidnapped by former university classmate Iyad Adi Kassar. Using her son as leverage tries to force her to steal the BAT. She has no idea what he wants it for; she just knows that if she refuses her son will be harmed... all of this happens in the first couple of episodes, mostly the first! From then on Victoria is forced to make more and more choices that test her personal morality and the security forces work to find out who is behind the theft of the bombs and what the plan to use the remaining bomb for.

This thriller got off to an exciting start that introduced the situation and sets the tension rising. Once Victoria and her son have been kidnapped things get even tenser; the fact that they are held in her flat only adds to the sense of claustrophobia. Even when Victoria goes out she knows she is being watched and any wrong move will put her son in danger. Birgitte Hjort Sørensen impresses as Victoria; making the viewer feel the moral dilemmas she is being put through. Ardalan Esmaili is equally solid as Iyad; a character who isn't quite as unsympathetic as he initially appears but is still menacing. The rest of the cast are solid too. The story moves at a good pace and kept me gripped throughout. Towards the end things get a little melodramatic but not excessively so. Overall an exciting thriller that I'd recommend to fans of the genre.

These comments are based on watching the series in Danish/Swedish with English subtitles.
