Enter the high-stakes world of Scandinavian politics in Those in Power from Sweden and Borgen from Denmark. The Machiavellian power plays, the intrigue and the ambition may seem familiar, but this time it’s women striving to become Prime Minister. Their vision is to serve, but at what cost?

Cited by Stephen King as his favorite television series of the year, Denmark’s blockbuster political drama, Borgen (“The Castle”) explores the insular world of high-stakes Danish politics and the press corps that covers it in instantaneous, relentless news cycles. Birgitte Nyborg becomes Prime Minister of Denmark through a political fluke and has to learn the ways of power, quickly. She’s an altruistic public servant in an old boys club and must master the art of the deal overnight, manage her image and understand that she has advisors but no real friends. She also must perform the impossible juggling act of maintaining a family life while serving as Denmark’s first female Prime Minister. The rigors of public life and journalism may attract some of Denmark’s finest, but it also exacts a high price from them all for participating in an open democracy.

Power. The ultimate aphrodisiac. It brings out the altruist or the monster in those who have it or want it, fueling loyalty and sacrifice or betrayal and secret alliances. In this gripping political trilogy set in the Scandinavian power epicenter of Stockholm, agendas and oversized egos collide as Social Democrats square off with conservatives over who will command the country as it faces the challenges of the 21st Century: unemployment, recession, immigration and the environment. The players not only have to contend with each other, but with angry constituents and a press that feeds off a sensational 24-hour news cycle. The unbelievably high stakes - of Sweden’s future and her place in the world - drive the brutality of the battle. Based on the bestselling trilogy by Hanne-Vibeke Holst.
