More than a million Norwegians tuned in Sunday evening to the much-hyped premiere of the new television series based on Lars Saabye Christensen’s epic novel The Half Brother (Halvbroren).
“It becomes more than just a TV series with so many watching,” Per Olav Sørensen, who directed the series, told NRK on Monday. “It becomes a national event.” Kristian Tolonen, analysis chief for NRK, said the viewership was historic as well. “This is the best opening a drama series on NRK has ever had,” Tolonen told NRK.no.
It’s already been sold to several other countries including the US, Ireland, the Netherlands, four Balkan nations and all those in the Nordic area.
