'Mammon' is a Nordic Noir thriller series in the spirit of "All the President's Men". However, not all journalists are fully committed to the truth, with personal agendas clouding judgements. Peter Veras is an uncompromising journalist at the most respected newspaper in Norway. He makes the biggest mistake of his life after obtaining evidence of financial fraud from an anonymous source that points to his own brother, with horribly tragic consequences for Peter and his family. A search for the truth ignites, involving the media, high-ranking politicians as well as the financial elite. The closer Peter gets to the truth the further he places himself squarely in danger's path, but he has come too far to back down now...
Yet more 'Nordic noir' - but this one is too complex and convoluted. Not bad, just average

I've now watched several Scandinavian 'Nordic noir' TV series and this is yet another, this time from Norway. That means it's in Norwegian with subtitles.
It tells a complex, convoluted tale of an investigative journalist trying to get to the bottom of a financial / investment conspiracy, which turns out to involve his own brother and with a strange quasi religious element and constant references to the story of Abraham and God's request that he sacrifice his son.
I found it over-complex and difficult to follow in parts as new characters seemed to be constantly introduced. Also, I don't remember it being constantly gloomy with everything in semi darkness last time I was in Oslo...
