Occupied (Okkupert): Season 1 - Preview


Preview by Jack Foley

FROM the makers of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and best-selling author Jo Nesbø comes the new Nordic sensation, political suspense thriller Occupied (Okkupert).

Currently screening on Sky Arts as its top rated programme, this action-packed hit drama arrives on Blu-ray and DVD courtesy of Dazzler Media on Monday, March 21, 2016.

Set in the not so distant future where climate change has brought Europe to the brink of war, Henrik Mestad (Lilyhammer) stars as environmentally friendly prime minister Jasper Berg. He has convinced his voters that the best way to tackle climate change is to halt all oil production in Norway, sending the country and the rest of the world into crisis.

Unable to ignore calls from the rest of the world to intervene, Russia, at the behest of the EU, stages a ‘silk-glove’ invasion – to secure the oil for the rest of the world. They have, they say, every intention of retreating once this has been accomplished. But it’s not long before events unfold that threaten to change everything.

Based on an idea by Jo Nesbø (Headhunters), this gripping, multi-layered 10-part series examines what happens to a nation under occupation, and explores the themes of loyalty to oneself, one’s family and one’s country.

It comes to Blu-ray and DVD as Occupied: Season 1 on March 21, 2016.

Also starring Vegar Hoel (Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters) and Ingeborga Dapkunaite (Mission: Impossible), Occupied is a stylish and extremely topical drama with high production values, that has continued to obtain fantastic ratings including doubling Sky Arts channel average on its launch.
