Series two of Norwegian thriller Mammon with Laura Christensen playing leading role Ellen Claussen has been nominated for ‘Best Drama’ at the 45th International Emmy Awards.

In Mammon, a well-known and controversial journalist is killed. Norway is in shock. Freedom of expression is under attack and the country fears that terror will strike again. As the story unfolds, the journalist’s wife (Laura Christensen) and Peter Vera (Jon Øigarden) try to unravel what and why this happened.

Head of production company NRK Drama, Ivar Køhn, said: “This shows that NRK is producing world-class drama. Being one of four nominees means that Mammon is the one series chosen from Europe and, knowing what was produced in Europe last year, we are very proud to be nominated.”

The International Emmy awards ceremony will be handed out in New York on November 20, 2017.


Laura Christensen is a leading Danish actress, best known for playing Ellen Claussen in Mammon (NRK), and Lisa in The Killing for AMC/Netflix. Other notable credits include Lea Jensen in Crossing Lines (NBC) and Countess Ottmann in Heartless.

Laura has worked prolifically with director Lars Von Triers on two seasons of The Kingdom, and his controversial 2013 film Nymphomaniac.
