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?"

Amazing!!
9 April 2018 | by amanchdhrySee all my reviews

Watched it on BBC iPlayer, saw the whole season in two days. Love Danish tv shows but this is an exception, full of curiosity & compassion! Well done to all the actors.
