Arrow Films' Nordic Noir label is pleased to announce the UK DVD box set debut of the never-before-seen second series of The Protectors available to own 7th October 2013.

One of the most popular TV shows in its Nordic homeland, The Protectors was filmed on location in Copenhagen and first aired on the DR channel in early 2009. Later that year, it won the coveted international Emmy award for "best non-American television drama series".

From Mai Brostrøm and Peter Thorsboe, the co-creators of recent Nordic Noir breakout series Unit One, The Protectors tells the story of P.E.T., the Danish national police force in charge of personal protection.

The second season opens with one of the many repercussion from the Danish Muhammad cartoons. The Danish foreign minister will re-open the embassy in Islamabad after the terrorist bombing a few years ago and while she would like to encourage the West's support for Pakistan's threatened girl school, it requires a massive security support. Jasmina and Little Kurt will be sent in advance along with a number of colleagues but the mission in Pakistan has fatal consequences. In the meantime Jonas and Rasmus will be involved in the continued protection of one of the cartoonists in Denmark.

Jasmina and Rasmus have started a relationship. While he is ready to start a life with her, Jasmina is in doubt, how can their job fit in with having a family? But when Rasmus saves her from death, she slowly begins to re-evaluate her future. Jonas has been divorced and has a problem with the fact that Jasmina has chosen to be with Rasmus, until he goes to Moscow on an assignment and is suddenly faced with his old love, the Russian journalist Tanja.

During a mission in Pakistan Leon loses one of his most trusted colleagues whose wife is expecting a child. The risks of working as a bodyguard suddenly become very clear to him and Leon realizes the uncertainty relatives constantly have to live with. He takes responsibility by proposing to his girlfriend, the mother of his little son. But their wedding is not common due to the circumstances. Meanwhile the bodyguard's supreme commander, Toenne, finds herself in an unusual relationship, with the Head of Security at the U.S. Embassy in Copenhagen. When the Justice Ministry finds out, Toenne is faced with problems.

Following their success with the likes of The Killing, Borgen, Wallander and The Bridge, Arrow continue to strive in bringing UK viewers the very best in Scandinavian television via their Nordic Noir label. While the aforementioned titles all aired on BBC4 prior to their DVD releases, Arrow have also enjoyed acclaim for bringing never-before-seen Nordic shows directly to UK living rooms via the home entertainments market.

Their passion and excitement for the genre found Arrow looking further into the Nordic catalogue and it was there that they discovered some fantastic, high quality shows, crying out for a new audience.

2013 has already seen the Nordic Noir label release Unit One, starring Mads Mikkelson andAbove The Street Below The Water, starring Sidse Babett Knudsen, direct to UK fans via DVD and Digital Download; both have been received exceptionally well.
