The primary aim of the article is to contribute to developing concepts for the analysis of location and plot in visual fiction. The secondary aim is to assess which strategies the Danish director Susanne Bier uses in her approach to an international production such as the British-American TV serial . Three perspectives are tested in combining the analysis of location with the development of the plot: the general concepts of universal and real geography; the idea of being located inside or outside a given context; and the associated notion of centre-periphery opposition. A geopolitical context is applied to illustrate the implication of these concepts.
