Someone said :
It is just such a cultured thing to say.
There's been seven Scandinavian tv series shown on British channels in recent years - The Killing, Arne Dahl, The Bridge, Those Who Kill, Wallander (Krister Hendrikkson), Wallander (Rolf Lassgard), and Sebastian Bergman. Most are cop shows and range in quality from the very good to the mediocre. There's nothing especially cultured about watching them.
At least another 11 foreign language series from other countries have been aired in the same period.
Of them all, Borgen is the most successful in drawing audiences, getting bigger audiences than even final series of The Killing. The Bridge got a bigger opening audience but Borgen has a higher average overall.
Borgen is a modern political drama about a fictional female Danish prime minister who starts out as an altruistic lefty and slowly starts to learn realpolitik. It's well worth the watch.
Double episodes from 9pm on Saturday on BBC4. This is the final series.
