I started back to front with Borgen with series 3 and then bought series 1 and 2 which is obviously the wrong way to do it. It is compelling viewing, powerfully acted and really engrossing. Buy it or steal it...you don't even notice the subtitles either. The storylines are contemporary, relevant and nobody gets killed in a horrible and nastily mysogynistic way as they do in other Scandi dramas. I heartily recommend it.
