Morgan Pålsson – World Reporter

A fumbling TV journalist finds himself having to report in the middle of an ongoing coup d’état in Africa

Foreign correspondent Morgan Pålsson has ended up in disfavour. After having put Sweden to shame in his latest report, he and the photographer Robert Flycht are sent to the fictitious African state Matóbo. He will monitor an election there that no one really cares about. But just as the duo arrive a coup d’état occurs in Matóbo – and the foreign correspondent and photographer end up in the middle of it. Suddenly, they find themselves right in the place where all of the global media outlets want to be. One of them who soon turns up is a female Norwegian journalist that Morgan immediately identifies as his arch-enemy.
