Salon

Season 1 Review: It is not puffed up with an American sense of grandiosity and world historical import. Each episode contains intricate twists and turns, but is focused on the human-size, psychological aspects of politics, of how Nyborg learns to be effective and at what cost.

The Guardian

Season 1 Review: It's a fantastically compelling and intricate drama about politics, gender, change and (mainly) power. With great characters – not just the women but the men too.

Season 1 Review: If I have an issue with this first episode, it’s that too much of the storytelling is driven by coincidence.
