Borgen: Season Three
Borgen is a modern Danish political drama about the personal costs and struggles for those who climb to the top of the political and the news broadcasting worlds. In this third and final season of Borgen, Birgitte Nyborg (Sidse Babett Knudsen) is a very different person than the confident prime minister who spoke at the lectern in Parliament. She is no longer prime minister. It has been two and a half years since she called an election in which she failed to win the required number of seats to maintain the existing government. She has since left politics and is now a high-paid business consultant, serving on several corporate boards. During a canned speech in which she describes a government whose vales she no longer recognizes, it becomes too much for her. She can no longer brush off the recurring question of what she would do if she were Prime Minister. Perhaps it's time to get back in the game.
