SCANDIC noir is back on British television screens and now Channel 4 is getting in on the act.
After BBC4’s success with cult series’ of The Killing, The Bridge and Borgen, More4 will screen a six episode series of Mammon which fans of those shows may well be hooked on.
It follows a well-trodden path of a story line driven by political intrigue, money and death, over six days in the life of journalist Peter Verås (Jon Øigarden).
He works for Norway’s most respected newspaper and uncovers evidence of a financial fraud involving Norway’s political and financial elite – evidence that points to his own brother.
He makes the fatal decision to pursue the story, which leads to his brother’s suicide. Verås then turns his attention to the anonymous tip that sparked the mystery, only to discover that the source was his brother himself.
Bewildered and grief-stricken, Verås presses on – but the closer he gets to the truth, the more dangerous it becomes for him and his family.
The first episode will be screened on More4 a 9pm on Friday, March 28.
