Intense historical drama
5 November 2014 | by DennisLaursen89See all my reviews

"Edderkoppen" (The Spider) is about post-WW2 Denmark, where black market is a major, criminal factor, and corruption is more widespread that anyone wants to know. It's based on a true story, but the specific people, events etc., are more or less fictive.

Edderkoppen follows a young journalist on a social democratic newspaper, and he discover the black market in Copenhagen. He tries to find out what's going on, and who is the mastermind, but soon he is "trapped in the spiders net". Several plot twists makes the story more intense over time, and the story is much more interesting, that a resume will let you think.
