Hammerborgs on film

Since becoming addicted to The Killing and Borgen we’ve tried out a mixed bag of other Danish TV series, and most recently have been watching The Protectors (Livvagterne in Danish). The set designer is clearly a Hammerborg fan, which has provided an entertaining sideline to the main action as we compete to see who can spot the Hammerborg lights first. We’ve taken snaps of some of our finds – in order of appearance: the Lento, the Single and the Ultra.
