I haven't seen much of it, but The Killing (Forbrydelsen) is a pretty decent cime-y thing. It's got Sofie Gråbøl in it, too (I really liked her in Fortitude), and she always seems to be wearing a fun jumper in Forbrydelsen. :) .

"Borgen" is quite popular TV-series about politics. I haven't watched it myself, but I have seen it in bookstores and libraries in Germany, so it is popular enough to export. ;) (The name "Borgen" refers to the common name for Christiansborg - the house of the Danish government).

Ten years ago "Rejseholdet" was popular. It is also a crime-series set at different locations in Denmark. I have also seen that one abroad.

"Broen" is newer and as far as I know a Danish-Swedish production. I don't know exactly what it is about, but it also have fans.

"Matador" is also a bit older and more historic. It was very popular, and I have heard good things about it (never seen it, though).

Borgen is superb and I would also recommend 1864 about Danish history.

I have watched Borgen (3 seasons), Broen (currently 2 seasons, 3rd out next year), and Forbrydelsen (the Killing) (3 seasons) and I loved all of them. They are actually the reason I got into learning Danish in the first place. I have downloaded another crime series which I haven't got round to watching yet, called Dem som Draeber (Those who Kill). I'd be interested to know about any more tv shows too.

I've been watching Rita on Netflix which is in Danish with English subtitles and I love it!

I'm currently re-watching Lars von Trier's 'Riget' (The Kingdom). I love this delightfully odd (mini) series! :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VijlYkLFdAk

You might know the Stephen King remake Kingdom Hospital.

I've seen this before without subs and the main problem was I could not understand the Swedish doctor! Well I did get when he said "Jävla danskar!" but little else. "Now that I've learned Swedish I should try again. Does anyone know a source with Danish subs?

Broen/Bron/The Bridge is really an awesome series and you can watch it at the Netflix at the moment. It is very great acting and exiting plot. I have watched seasons 1 and 2 and the 3rd is coming up soon.
