The first half of the final season’s episodes unfold a bit slowly, but they lay the groundwork for what is to come. The last three episodes crackle with energy and brilliant writing, tying up the series nicely. The show provides an informative view of what it takes to form a government in a parliamentary system based on proportional representation. It continues to explore the toll that politics takes on personal lives and the struggles of the media to remain relevant in an age when people prefer to be entertained rather than informed. Birgitte’s final act of putting the interests of her country ahead of her ambition shows statesman-like principles we could only hope to see in our own political leaders.

This just didn't touch the drama of the previous series. Many important characters are sidelined, including Birgitte's ex-husband and Juul. The tension just isn't there to the same degree and somethings are resolved far too easily and simply, like the jealousy of Katrine with respects to Juul. Thought I still really enjoyed it, I didn't like it as much as the first two series.

A good series.. Educational on how the Danish politics work, and what is important to the Danish people, etc.. Many interesting characters! I enjoyed it for the most part, especially the First Two series! But by the end, of this series, I'm rapidly losing interest! This is it for me.. no more! It has lost its traction and became humdrum!

sort of silly.. only the women and the kids had good roles. her husband's role was ridiculous, not telling anybody about her medical condition was ridiculous,

Spoilers - I wasn't sure how season three was going to get any better particularly without Birgitte Nyborg in Christiansborg Palace, but it did. As others have commented, over this series, I have learned so much about how the parliamentary system works. I also learned a little Danish: hej (hello), lille pige (little girl), Spin Doktor (Spin Doctor), Statsminister (Prime Minister) - however, unless I'm speaking with a very ambitious little girl, this won't get me very far.

I have watched all three episodes and owing to the intelligent subtitles have got the gist of Danish politics and, not only that, have learned about pig farming. I can't praise this excellent series enough. Informative and entertaining. Please give us more like it. Thank you.

Compare with the brilliant Season 1 and Season 2, the script of S3 is somehow weak. In this season, Torben and his boss Alexander are sort of one-dimensioned, and Katrine, Pia and Nete as admirers are not so convinced.

The best series of the past few years. The political, economic and social issues are very much of the present.
Believable characters, great acting. We need more great series like this.

Borgen gets better with each season. Fantastic political drama.

Season 3 is a let down compared to the first 2. Kaspar only makes a few cameo appearances. But even a disappointing Borgen is better than nothing. You still get to spend time with Birgitte Nyborg who is a fantastic and inspiring heroine.
