BBC4’s new Saturday Euro-treat comes from Denmark and is created by a co-writer of Borgen. The title Follow the Money (BBC 4 9pm) hints at the driving motive shared by most of its characters. Tonight’s opener contains one of the most chilling warnings ever uttered in international crime thrillers: “If necessary, go to Manchester.”
Mads (Thomas Bo Larsen) is a cop with definite maverick tendencies who, via the death of a Ukrainian workman employed at a wind farm, finds himself working with a strait-laced partner to investigate fraud at a Danish energy company. One of the major plot developments is telegraphed very early on and is one of the ho hum moments but the series looks promising and worth tuning in for next week.
