Critical Condition: Greyzone

Greyzone | TVNZ OnDemand, from Thursday

➢➢ “The ambitious new thriller brings a Scandi sensibility to a Homeland-style drama of international consequence … Greyzone represents the latest entry in the new wave of Danish dramas that are breaking away from the Scandi-Noir genre that shows from the region are so well known for. Gone is the moody atmospherics and in its place is a suspenseful drama that repositions the layered character drama Scandi TV is known for into a tightly controlled high octane thriller.” — SBS.

➢➢ “With its multiple narrative locations and far-reaching themes, the series is a shining example of European co-production, with Denmark, Sweden and Germany all partnering.” — Variety.

➢➢ “This terrific new Nordic thriller stars Danish actress Birgitte Hjort Sorensen, who is best known for her role in Borgen but who in recent times also has appeared in several English language series, from Game of Thrones to Vinyl.” — The Australian.
