5.0 out of 5 stars Birgitte is back for the 3rd and final series 12 Nov 2013
By Amazon Customer TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
SKIP THIS REVIEW IF YOU HAVE NOT YET WATCHED SERIES 2

2 ½ years have passed since Birgitte Nyborg (Sidse Babett Knudsen) called an election in episode 20 of series 2. And we meet a very different woman - she has left politics and is now a well-paid keynote speaker as well as a board member of a number of businesses.

Katrine Fønsmark (Birgitte Hjort Sørensen) is still a reporter and currently TV1's most popular presenter. She and Kasper Juul (Pilou Asbæk) have a little boy, Gustav. Kasper owns a communications agency and co-presents "Juul and Friis" on TV1 where he and TV1's political editor Torben Friis (Søren Malling) analyse and comment on the political situation in Denmark.

Although Birgitte has a good life, she can't help but miss politics and she still feels that she has something to give in that respect, so soon she starts working on getting back in - her way - and with some surprising helpers along the way.

This 3rd series is definitely my favourite and I thought it would be difficult to beat the second one! But there are so many sides to the story and so many interesting characters that the 10 episodes fly by and I was left with a sense of loss after the last episode - but also satisfied as I felt that once again the acting, storytelling, facts and fiction all blended in together beautifully and I guess sometimes you have to stop on a high, which I felt they did. I watched this online on DR's website, so I cannot comment on the DVD extras, but the series alone is well worth buying!

5.0 out of 5 stars Final series to conclude the Borgen story 28 Sep 2013
By Mikey TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the third and final set of episodes featuring the Prime Minister that we wish we had ourselves, Birgitte Nyborg, played by the wonderful Sidse Babett Knudsen. When we last saw Birgitte, she called an election. Where we find her now is two and a half years later and there have been numerous changes at Christiansborg Palace, particularly with a new leader for the Moderate Party.
Most of the familiar faces from series 1 and 2 are back along with some new faces. Popular Michael Birkkjær returns as Philip Christensen along with Pilou Asbæk as political analyst Kasper Juul in a lesser role than previously. Søren Malling is back as Torben Friis at TV1 but with a new boss. Fans of The Killing will be delighted to see Marie Askehave and Lars Mikkelsen (Rie and Troels from series 1) pop up during the series, and even on screen together!
But the start of the show has moved on from the election and is setting on a new project with the help of Katrine Fønsgard (Birgitte Hjort Sørensen). We also meet a new cast member - a UK actor who shares his scenes with Sidse. Don't expect much Danish to be heard in their scenes together.
The series was screened in Denmark on DR1 (equivalent of BBC1) from New Year's Day 2013 and then most Sundays at 8pm beating all other programmes in ratings on most weeks. Only when Denmark had an important handball game on the other side happening simultaneously to Borgen's screening did Borgen lose ground. This then caused DR to delay the screening of the next episode by a week as handball was now in Borgen's slot on DR1.
For anyone who enjoys something other than the usual UK/US material, Borgen is a joy to watch. As Sidse herself said in a recent interview, shows from Denmark can be considered as "exotic" as they are a change from the norm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Borgen Season 3 27 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Another excellent but final season of Borgen. I enjoyed the storyline with new characters, the pressure of working in TV1, the formation of a new political party and all that it involved. However I did miss the interaction between Birgitte and Kasper in the PM's office and I preferred Katrine as a journalist and TV anchor. Adam Price did say it was going to be different! I am now in the middle of season 2 again before I decide whether to buy the box set of The Killing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! Must watch! 18 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of Nordic TV and was attracted to Borgen when I noticed it was by the same people who brought us The Killing. I started watching Borgen in January and got through all three seasons by the middle of February. Borgen is fantastically written and the acting is superb. All three seasons are excellent, although the first two are better than the third. You will fall in love with the characters. Who knew Danish politics could be so interesting! I can't wait to see what is next from this team.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, Superb 8 Mar 2014
By prisrob TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Coming back to Borgen after a year's lapse, I was so looking forward to it. As the Series 3 started, I was let down a bit. Episode one was exciting as we were introduced to Birgitte Nybirg as a woman on the move, sort of a roving CEO, making lots of money giving speeches, living in luxurious spaces. Then, we got to episode two, and what was Nyborg going to do. We meet all of the characters again, and are introduced to new ones. Husband number one is gone forever, but they are good friends. What I found that was with the parents who were separated or divorced,mthe child care was pretty much split. Good for Denmark!

We find out at the beginning that two and a half years have lapsed. The children look older, but not the main characters. Katrine Fonsmark, who plays Hjort Sorenson is a TV news anchor, seems to like it, but with her child now becoming a toddler, she may change horses in mid stream. Nyborg is drawn back into politics, she just can't stand what is happening to her country. However, no party really wants her, so she starts her own. Here is where we meet the rest if the characters, and the ten episodes are well drawn together with exciting and informative situations. The characters who had dropped out of the series because of divorce or ill-health, are welcomed back. Everything is different and yet it seems the same.

Nyborg has a boyfriend from the UK, played by Alastair Mackenzie, and she speaks English only, when she is with him. Excellent English, by the way, with only a trace of an accent. Each episode as I said introduces a new situation, ill health, new elections, lovers come and gone, but always they revolve around politics!

This was a great season, it provided everything I needed for a finish. Kudos.

Recommended. prisrob 03-07-14

This is the third and last of three series of Borgen. I've enjoyed every one right from the beginning. Even reading the sub-titles does not detract from the enjoyment.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent follow-up to first two seasons
Not quite as plot-twisty as the first two seasons, Season 3 is nonetheless an exciting political drama that's a must-see for admirers of one and two.
