Season 2 picks up two years into the first term of Danish prime minister Birgitte Nyborg (Sidse Babett Knudsen). While she's earned the respect of both her political friends and foes, leading the government is becoming increasingly difficult. Among the events that occur: she's caught in the middle of a firefight while visiting troops in Afghanistan; appoints a new EU commissioner; strives to forge compromises with the other parties in her coalition; and struggles with unfavorable opinion polls. As if all of that's not enough, the expected stress that's part and parcel of political life isn't just affecting her but, she comes to realize, her daughter Laura ( Freja Riemann), as well. It's an unsettling development, to say the least, and it's one that may have far-reaching ramifications.

Ultimately, Borgen is a show about compromise: not just the compromises politicians make in pursuit of power, but the compromises we all make, every day, and how these compromises, whether public or private, can't help but change us
