Failing narrowly in this attempt, Birgitte assesses her options and concludes that her only way back into politics is to start again and found a new political party. Forging an unlikely alliance with journalist, Katrine Fønsmark, who becomes her new media adviser and spokesman, the third season of BORGEN follows the journey of Nyborg and her new party towards a taking a fresh shot at parliament and fighting her way back to power back to Borgen .

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!
Yes, i liked it but have that nagging feeling i will not remember 'Borgen' as a series in the long term as Season 3 i felt was made
to capitalize on the first two seasons and in this i think they failed. I found the first half of Season 3 to lack bite, i missed Kasper Juul and Bent as main players and while i thought that Birgitte's English boyfriend was a good introduction, some of the characters in the newly formed 'New Democrats' lacked credibility and were weak performances. The series did come to life in the second half and become as good as the first two series but the ending could have been handled more expertly and not so predictably.
The series as a whole was totally entertaining and superbly produced but making Season 3 has made it only a 4 star series, it
should have ended after Season 2 but don't let me put you off seeing Season 3, it has it's moments.
This final series, as good as it is, is not up to the high level set by the first two seasons for a few reasons. I think we enjoyed seeing Birgitte as Prime Minister, solving international problems, rather than starting afresh. The reduction in roles for Birgitte's former spin doctor Kasper Juul and her friend Bent left some gaps. Kasper should have had a much bigger part in this story. Katrine Fonsmark ably is promoted to the Kaspar role; the former TV1 presenter, playerd by Birgitte Hjort Sorensen is excellent. Soren Malling has a greater role also as the tv news editor, competing with the new manager on policy and a fellow employee whom he is having an affair.
It would have been good if the Blu-Ray had included some sort of documentary about the making of the series, or an interview with the stars. Just putting the ten episodes with no extras is not really enough nowadays. For this reason, I only give it four stars, though in all, it is a five star series.
All in all, a highly memorable series, which I shall look forward to returning to.
Lastly, can anyone explain why the Blu-Ray version of this costs £7 less than the DVD one?
Nothing will compare to the American program or the saintly President Jed Bartlett. However, Sidse Babett Knudsen plays a not-very-flawed Danish Prime Minister who rises from lowly beginnings. This series brings a European (EEC) flavour to the screen and continues our current love affair with Scandinavian TV programs. The necessary sub-titles do not detract from the viewing experience.
The incidents are taken from real-life situations. Danish politics seems to be a lot more civilized than the American, British or Australian variety. If this is true I think Denmark would be a comfortable place to live despite the fact that it is a minor European nation. I believe some people found Series 3 to be below par. I thought them all eminently watchable. I agree that three series were sufficient. If you like behind-the-scenes political shenanigans with sensible situations but without the cut-throat attitudes then this series is for you.
