Follow The Money | Bedrag – Season 2
OVERVIEW | NEWS | CAST | SEASON 1 | SEASON 2 | SEASON 3 | SOUNDTRACK
Mads and Alf at the fraud squad have not forgotten the crimes committed by Energreen and are still looking for a chance to arrest the CEO, Sander, who is missing. When a desperate man complains that his small carpentry business was forced into bankruptcy, the fraud squad delve into the practices of a major bank and uncover more than they expected. Claudia, a young lawyer, paid dearly for her involvement in Energreen. After serving 18 months in prison she’s finally released – but to what? Ex-convict-turned-mechanic Nicky and his hapless friend Bimse now run their own garage, but Nicky has also been taken under the wing of the Swedish fixer, which comes at a high price.
The police have to give a statement about the dramatic events at Nova Bank, and Mads investigates the bank’s involvement in the carpenter’s bankruptcy. Meanwhile, he has unexpected news at home. Claudia starts her new job at Absalon Bank, but struggles with the long-distance relationship with her son. Tensions arise at the garage as Nicky spends more and more time on assignments for the Swede, and less time helping Bimse with their business.
Nicky and Bimse’s friendship is tested when Bimse is questioned about the assault on a police officer. The fraud squad uncovers some unsavoury practices at Nova Bank, and Alf and Mads investigate a bank manager who is living well above his means. Claudia tries to get herself a contract of employment to satisfy her parole officer. Kristina and Mads have a big decision to make.
Mads and Alf unravel the corrupt practices at Nova Bank, not realising that their boss Nanna is reporting their findings to Nova’s chairman, the very man they are trying to bring down. Amanda struggles with her demons as Absalon Bank faces a critical vote from its shareholders. The Swede tries to influence this vote and gives Nicky a dirty job to do.
Mads and Alf, so far unable to pin any fraud on the chairman of Nova Bank, find a new lead and are able to bring him in for questioning. Nicky has an unexpected visit at the garage, straining his relationship with Bimse even further, but Nicky will soon have much bigger things to worry about. Amanda and Claudia realise that the only way to avoid Absalon Bank being taken over by Nova is to find another bank that is willing to buy them.
Nicky’s assignment from Christiansen, to kidnap the granddaughter of his ex-colleague, proves troublesome and he desperately tries to cover his tracks. Alf and Mads get another lead in their case against Christiansen and think they can finally nail him. Amanda resorts to blackmail to keep control of her bank.
After his failed assignment, Nicky has fallen out of favour with the Swede and is tipped over the edge when he can’t get answers from him. At the Fraud Squad, Mads is more impatient than ever to get evidence against Christensen. Against his boss’s advice, he heads over to Absalon Bank and sees something that will be important for the investigation – Claudia.
Claudia is feeding the police information about Christensen, but fails to give them any concrete evidence. Mads and Alf press her to lure him into a trap. Their co-operation brings up the Energreen scandal again, and Claudia tells them what she knows about Sanders’ escape route, information which puts them on the trail of the Swede. Meanwhile, the Swede meant what he said to Nicky who now reports directly to Christensen, while the Swede himself prepares his exit from the dirty games.
Mads waits nervously in the hospital not realising there is also trouble at home. His pregnant wife Kristina is woken by a noise in the dark as Nicky has broken into their home to retrieve the evidence against Christensen. Absalon is on the verge of bankruptcy, and the siblings Amanda and Simon are fighting to save their bank. Claudia will stop at nothing to get revenge on Christensen, even if it means betraying the people who trust her. The Swede turns up at the garage, desperately looking for Nicky – but finds Bimse.
Alf has rumbled Christensen’s plan – a huge attack on the Danish krone. He and Mads try to stop it, but the attack is already underway and threatens to bring the whole country’s economy to its knees. Claudia has sold Steen to the police to get revenge on Christensen, but it’s still not enough to trap the unscrupulous businessman. Amanda struggles to prove that Simon is not complicit in Christensen’s crimes.
