Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery

Borgen, Series 3 Episode 5 of 10

There is unrest amongst the New Democrats when the sex trade is placed on the agenda. In Copenhagen, police have found three women who have been locked up and forced to have sex against their will. The case causes the political parties to discuss the need for a law prohibiting the purchase of sex in Denmark.

During the negotiations on the bill, however, Birgitte requests time for reflection when she becomes in doubt about what prostitutes themselves actually want or need. This comes as a disappointment to Katrine, who supports a rapid ban.

Torben's problems escalate when his boss, Alex, finds out about his affair. Katrine and Kasper work out where it all went wrong in their relationship. Birgitte wonders whether to introduce Jeremy to her children, while he has concerns for her health.

In Danish with English subtitles.
