Arvingerne (The Legacy)

Arvingerne is a Danish television series. Veronika Grønnegaard  is a world renowned famous artist who lived the sixties lifestyle and suddenly dies. She was the  matriarch of Grønnegaard manor and left behind her 3 children Gro, Frederick and Emil. Upon Veronkias death Signe Larson is informed that she is also a child of Veronica’s.

The inheritance from Veronkias estate is now in play and the four siblings begin a journey of discovery with twists, turns, and epic arguments that eventually lead to more than a few revelations about their parents history and behavior whilst they were alive.

Arvingerne is such an enjoyable drama because of its fast pace and flaming rows. The writing is above average and the acting by the main cast is enjoyable to watch. My particular favorite being Carsten Bjørnlund who plays Frederick, which in my opinion is the most interesting character in the series.
