In THE TEAM the story of a small and flexible cross-border investigation unit is told: Harald Bjørn (Lars Mikkelsen) from Denmark, Jackie Mueller (Jasmin Gerat) from Germany and Alicia Verbeek (Veerle Beatens) from Belgium, as they unravel an unscrupulous criminal organization in Europe. Their work is not devoid of personal cost. Old wounds are ripped up. New wounds are caused. In their investigation they often find themselves staring into an abyss of death and destruction. But that is also where they find the truth. And their friendship.
The investigation leads THE TEAM across Europe, from Berlin to Copenhagen, from Antwerp to The Hague up to the Austrian Alps and over to Lithuania and reveals how organized crime cuts through and affects all layers of society. But, most of all, the fates of relatives and the victims of crime.
