Katrine Fønsmark is offered the greatest journalistic scoop of her career when she is contacted by an anonymous source in the Defence Intelligence Service. He shows her pictures of CIA detainees leaving an aircraft at Thule Air Base in Greenland – proof that the US has conducted prisoner renditions on Danish soil! The revelations come at a very bad time for Birgitte, who has now been in office for almost 100 days and therefore needs a positive story or some concrete political results. Instead, she now has to clean up a case from the previous government. But it quickly dawns upon her that violations of Greenlandic territory are nothing new – from the Danish colonisation 300 years ago to the stationing of US nuclear weapons there during the Cold War, and prisoner transports after 9-11. No Danish prime minister has ever apologised for any of it. Birgitte wants to take action, but she is persuaded to hush the matter up by Kasper Juul and her cabinet ministers – who in Birgitte's opinion are already beginning to think and act more and more like the old government.
