Borgen, Series 2 Episode 1 of 10

Duration: 1 hour

Birgitte Nyborg has now been prime minister for almost two years - a respected politician, wise in the ways of the political gambit. She is visiting soldiers stationed in Afghanistan when their encampment comes under attack, claiming the lives of several soldiers. The time has come to choose - send the troops home or stage a counter attack. Katrine Fonsmark, now a reporter at Ekspres, approaches the father of one of the fallen soldiers in order to write a story. Kasper Juul divides his time between his job as the PM's spin doctor and his new girlfriend who is a journalist.

In Danish with English subtitles.
