Following their recent success with their Bafta winning series’ The Killing, Borgen, and The Bridge, Arrow Film’s Nordic Noir label are pleased to announce the release of UNIT ONE: SERIES FOUR, the final 8 episodes in what has become one of the most-popular titles housed under the Nordic Noir banner.
With an overwhelming response to the season one, two and three releases over the past 18 months, Arrow Films’ Nordic Noir label is excited to announce the UK DVD box set debut of UNIT ONE: SERIES FOUR on Monday 7th July 2014 which includes the final full-length 8 episodes in this 3 disc-set.
Based on actual, real-life Danish crimes which have occurred across the last 2 decades, the International Emmy award winning UNIT ONE is one of the hardest hitting of the Scandi-crime series. It follows an elite mobile police force, referred to as a flying squad, as they are dispatched to assist local police in solving some of the most complex and high profile cases Denmark has ever bore witness to.
Starring alongside Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal, The Hunt, Casino Royale, Pusher), who won the Best Actor Award at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, are some of Denmark’s brightest and best-loved actors, Trine Pallensen (The Killing 3) and Lars Beygmann (Borgen) as seen on UK screens.
The entire series revolves around an elite mobile police task force called “Unit One” that travel around Denmark helping local police divisions solve sensational crimes, with the cases being based upon actual true-life incidents, such as murders, kidnappings, cross-border sex-trafficking and child pornography.
Exhilarating and fast-paced, we follow the fascinating and dangerous world of the UNIT ONE squad as they immerse themselves in the Danish underworld. Prepare to be thrilled by their commitment and affectionate solidarity, yet puzzled by the often horrifying examples of human nature they face in their day-to-day work.
UNIT ONE asks many questions of the heroes and heroines portrayed in the show, such as what happens to those in real life who have chosen a career such as the ones portrayed in the series? A member of the flying squad is away from home 230 days a year, can a marriage and a family cope with that? What qualifications? What dedication? What kind of team spirit do these men and women possess in order to achieve one of the highest success rates in the world?
