The first season of Mammon follows six days in the life of uncompromising journalist, Peter Verås (Jon Øigarden), who works for Norway s most respected newspaper.
In a dense, multi-layered plot reminiscent of All The President s Men, Verås uncovers evidence of a financial fraud involving Norway s political and financial elite evidence that points to his own brother. He then makes the fatal decision to pursue the story, which leads to his brother s suicide.
Verås then turns his attention to the anonymous tip that sparked the mystery, only to discover that the source was his brother himself. Bewildered and grief-stricken, Verås presses on but the closer he gets to the truth, the more dangerous it becomes for him and his family.
