The emergency services receive a chilling phone call from a distraught man unable to find his wife. Reports later reveal that a woman was stabbed 21 times in a fatal attack. Sarah Lund is recalled by Lennart Brix.
In the gripping return of the BAFTA award-winning series, Sarah Lund returns to Copenhagen to investigate a savage murder when an ex-soldier who served in Afghanistan is savagely killed. Parallel to Lund, both the Minister of Justice and an escaped convict are also desperately searching for the murderer. They are the protagonists of a twisting tale of top-level cover-ups, betrayals and lies set in a time of fear--that of Islamic terrorism.

Series 2 is more of the same formula - murder, politics, police, corruption, red herrings galore, and it works just as well. It is shorter than series 1, and I think it is the better for that. There were so many red herrings along the way in series 1 that when it came to the crunch at the end, many of them were not alluded to in any way, leaving some unsatisfactory loose ends.
It is a sure sign of how good these are that we frequently put one on just before bed, and when it ended, looked at each other and said "just one more?".
TV at its best. And I have just found there is a series 3! That's next Christmas sorted then...
The young newly appointed Minister of Justice tries to negotiate a new Terror Act with the other parties, but this is made difficult by the murder of the lawyer since it looks like the person or persons behind might be terrorists. As ex-elite army unit victims start turning up, however, it looks like the Danish Army and certain politicians might be involved as well and Lund could be facing her biggest challenge to date.
Once again there are plenty of red herrings laid out for us to follow in the dark, gritty and wintery Copenhagen (I'm not sure Visit Denmark is necessarily overly happy with this depiction of Denmark :)) and again the strength of the series is the well-thought-out main story and the strong character development of pretty much everyone involved.
Whereas the first season had 20 episodes and lots of side stories focusing on the private lives of the individuals involved, this series is more plot heavy and intense and only has 10 episodes. We move from the local (the first series dealt with the murder of a Copenhagen school girl and the grief of her parents as well as City Hall politicians and their potential links to the murder) to national level but the focus is still real people with real issues as well as the overlying theme of terror and politics.
Sofie Gråbøl is once again fantastic as Sarah Lund - although it was difficult to see her so subdued and without confidence in the first couple of episodes as she is obviously still dealing with the aftermath of the last big case, but that soon changes and she's back to charging head first into any situation - no matter the consequences.
I watched it in Danish, so can't comment on the translation, but I hope they will give it the attention this brilliant series deserves.
A must see!
