A political drama about a prime minister's rise to power, and how power changes a prime minister.
Although a fan of the show, Denmark's real female Prime Minister, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, claimed "I've made a point of not watching Sidse Babett Knudsen too closely just to make sure I'm not too influenced by her. If anything, it sometimes feels more as if life is imitating art."
When subtitled e.g. in news clips Lars Brygmann's character's name is sometimes spelled "Troels Höxenhaven" and sometimes "Troels Høxenhaven". The letter "ö" does not exist in the Danisch alphabet. It should be "ø" in general.
