Channel 4/Walter Presents acquires Danish crime drama, Norskov

Standard

Screen Shot 2016-04-14 at 17.47.40Denmark’s Follow The Money is about to end this weekend, but have no fear – there’s another Danish crime drama on the horizon. Norskov is its name and, according to the Scanilo.us website, it has been picked up by Channel 4/Walter Presents for transmission here in the UK. The show gave its native TV2 channel its biggest ever ratings, so perhaps we should prepare ourselves for more Scandi-candy.

So, Norskov, then…

Police investigator Tom Noack returns home to Norskov to clean up the town’s drug crime but quickly becomes personally involved. When he happens on the trail of a major smuggling operation, Tom is torn between his professional and his personal commitments. Tom has to navigate between his brother-in-law Martin, Norskov’s mayor, his sister Jackie, the director of the family business, and a childhood friend Bondy, who is the brother of Tom’s teenage sweetheart, Diana. In the middle of the intrigues is Diana’s young son, Oliver, who is a talented hockey player trying to find a foothold.

There’s still no word on a transmission date, but we do know this – Norskov will be a one-series wonder, because TV2 canned it after just one critically-acclaimed series.

Here’s a trailer to whet your appetites…
