Sidse Babett Knudsen (Borgen, The Duke of Burgundy) leads a strong cast in a powerful drama that explores the impact on four women of their work fighting to bring to justice those guilty of crimes against humanity. Based on the best-selling novel by Christian Jungersen, 'The Exception' focuses on a team of women working at a centre that investigates human rights abuses in Copenhagen. When a threatening letter arrives at the centre, it opens old wounds and highlights the physical and psychological danger of the environment these investigators work in. Shot in cool, steely tones, with an oppressive mood that aligns it with the best conspiracy thrillers, Borgen director Jesper W. Nielsen's thriller profits from its slow-burn approach, gradually building up tension as a sense of paranoia affects each character, threatening to undermine their mission and placing them in danger.
