Storyline

On a rainy October morning, fifteen Danes have their lives turned upside down when the metro train they are traveling on is hijacked by unknown perpetrators, who will threaten to kill each of them, one by one, if their demands aren't met. This is the beginning of a historic hostage situation that, over the course of one single week, changes Denmark forever. The official Denmark finds itself caught in a whirlwind. The politicians argue whether or not to negotiate with terrorists. In the press, there are discussions on where the line is drawn in portraying the captives and seeking out their families. Ordinary Danes are thinking that it could just as well have been them. Among the hostages, the thoughts vary between rebellion, negotiation and apathy, but one thought is shared by all: "Am I going to die now?"

Amazing, Couldn't Stop Watching
11 April 2018 | by rachaelcollinsonSee all my reviews

I started watching this out of curiosity and after the first episode i binge watched the following 7 on BBC I Player. I think that from a technical point of view the producer has captured this perfectly, and i think the actors portray the roles they play as if it was real life. I wasn't expecting the ending but never the less it captured my heart and in the end i cried at the ending. Cant wait for season 2 (if there is one)
