Cementing BBC Four’s reputation as the home of the very best Danish drama, the channel today announces Follow The Money, a new crime thriller set in the world of economic crime. It is the story of speculators, swindlers and corporate princes and the crimes they commit in the pursuit of wealth.

Cassian Harrison, Editor of BBC Four, says: “BBC Four continues to bring the very best international drama to its audience and I’m particularly pleased to welcome Follow The Money to the channel. This gripping new series from DR really adds to the quality and range of programming on the BBC Four slate.”

Sue Deeks, BBC Head of Programme Acquisition, adds: "Follow The Money is a stylish, intelligent, thought-provoking and complex multi-stranded drama. Following on from The Killing, Borgen and 1864, we are delighted to have another superb series from DR on BBC Four."

When a dead body is found in the sea near a wind farm off the coast of Denmark, Mads, the police detective assigned to the investigation, refuses to believe that it is just an accident. The deeper he digs, the more suspicious he becomes of quickly expanding energy company Energen and is drawn into a morass of financial and legal shady dealings...

Follow The Money stars Thomas Bo Larson (Mads), Natalie Madueño Wolfsberg (Claudia), Esben Smed (Nicky) and Nikolaj Lie Kaas (Alexander).

The series is created by Jeppe Gjervig Gram (co-writer on Borgen) and directed by Per Fly (Monica Z, The Inheritance, The Woman Who Dreamt Of A Man). Other writers include Anders August and Jannik Tai Mosholt. The executive producer is Anders Toft Anderson. It is made by DR and distributed by DR Sales.
