When her father is murdered in cold blood, Danish con-woman Sylvia Petersen (Cecilie Stenspil, The Protectors) has her life turned upside down. Reeling from his death, she plots revenge on crime kingpin Ravn (Mark Mitchinson, Dear Murderer, Rake). But when the job goes haywire, Sylvia is forced to flee, leaving her mother and daughter behind. A master of disguise and deception, Sylvia holes up in picturesque New Zealand, where she befriends a local café owner and his handsome son (Matthew Walker, Filthy Rich). But with Ravn and his henchmen targeting her loved ones back in Copenhagen, Sylvia’s hideout is as much a prison as a refuge. Can she save her family from the other side of the world? With stunning scenery and high-stakes action, this gritty international thriller offers an adrenaline-filled ride across the globe.
Danish con-woman Sylvia Petersen secretly works with her father, Des, in his stolen-goods operation, but her world is turned upside down when he is murdered in cold blood. Believing crime kingpin Ravn ordered the hit, Sylvia decides to take revenge on him.
2. Not Far Enough
Sylvia arrives in New Zealand and secures an apartment above a café in exchange for working at the bar, while her mother, Lisbeth, and daughter, Ida, retreat to a safe house in Denmark. After being put on mandatory leave, Detective Qvist embarks on his own inquiry.
Ravn captures Ida and issues Sylvia an ultimatum: come back within 24 hours, or Ida will be killed. In New Zealand, Sylvia races against the clock to organize an exchange of incriminating files against Ravn to save her daughter, while at the same time convincing Ravn and Qvist that she’s still in Denmark.

Safe but worried about her father, Gillard, Ida tries to contact him, despite Lisbeth’s warnings that he may have sold them out to Ravn. While Ida prepares to leave Denmark, Sylvia gets closer to Adam.

7. Till Death Do Us Part
Sylvia escapes her ordeal with Karmen, but she is severely wounded and must trust Adam to rescue Ida. Lisbeth intends to flee to France following Des’s funeral, but an altercation with Ravn’s men spells disaster for Sylvia’s team.
Excellent Shaw kept me on my toes throughout the whole show can't wait for more episodes to come.
It his Pretty, pretty, pretty depressing. We thought about selling Ice Cream at Cineplex to comfort clients.
i am a mystery, intriguing story/movie type of person. I enjoy and hope there is another Season to this movie--Qudos
Great show. started watching it and couldn't stop until it was done.
What seems to start out as a good crime thriller with 2 crime families ends up with a week plot and storyline - a lot better fare on Sundance and elsewhere.
