Hostage To Fortune
♦ Thanks to those fine folks at Organic and StudioCanal, we have three sets of Scandi thriller Below The Surface to give away. So here’s our competition…
Following its TX on BBC Four, STUDIOCANAL is pleased to announce that the explosive Danish Nordic Noir crime thriller – Below The Surface – will be available on Digital Download from 8 April and DVD from 9 April 2018; available to pre-order now: http://scnl.co/BelowTheSurface. This thrilling eight-part series comes from creator Kaspar Barfoed, whilst BAFTA award-winning writer/creator of The Killing Søren Sveistrup joins fellow BAFTA winner and Borgen creator Adam Price and A Royal Affair producer Meta Louise Foldager Sørensen as fellow executive producers.
On a rainy October morning, fifteen Danes have their lives turned upside down when the metro train they are travelling 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 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 left thinking that it could 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?”
From SAM Productions comes BELOW THE SURFACE, a sophisticated Scandinavian thriller set against the backdrop of Copenhagen in crisis.
To win yourself a set, just answer the following question:
Q: What was the name of the SBS period drama he starred in?
Closing date is Tuesday 24 April 2018.
The competition is open to anyone aged 16 years or over except anyone otherwise connected with the organisation or judging of the competition.
