Danish thriller series Below the Surface on DVD & Digital in April

15 March 2018

Following its screening on BBC Four, Studiocanal has announced that the Danish Nordic Noir crime thriller Below the Surface will be available on Digital Download and DVD in April.

This thrilling eight-part series comes from BAFTA award-winning writer/creator of The Killing Søren Sveistrup, who 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?”
