‘Borgen: Power & Glory’ Storyline
Borgen - Power and Glory tackles some of today's most pressing political issues, including the role of Denmark in the modern world, the big Arctic control struggle, and, not least, climate change. The emphasis is on the struggle for power and what it means to people, both professionally and personally.
When a mining company discovers oil in Greenland, Birgitte Nyborg is the newly appointed foreign minister. It is an event that signals the start of an international fight for Arctic dominance, and one in which Nyborg, the most knowledgeable politician, must repeatedly recognize that, despite his 'big brother' of Denmark and Greenland, Denmark is a little participant – and nevertheless unmanageable!

Sidse Babett Knudsen stars as Birgitte Nyborg, a staunch politician, mother, and caring wife, as she did in previous seasons of Borgen. Sidse has continued to appear in films such as Westworld, The Accident, Ted Lasso, Inferno, and Roadkill.
