Risk is nothing, status is everything
Blinded is an exciting and credible financial thriller featuring captivating, complex characters. Young financial journalist Bea Farkas is having a secret affair with bank director Peder Rooth. She knows it’s unprofessional – her job is to investigate people like him – but she’s in love and can’t bring herself to end it. Neither of them are typical to their line of work. They both come from working-class backgrounds, and both have moved up the socio-economic ladder. She’s single, but he’s married to an upper-class woman called Sophie.
One day, Bea is given the assignment to monitor the bank’s quarterly report. She interviews Peder and both play their roles well. Careful to not give him any preferential treatment because of their relationship, she asks tough questions about how it’s been possible for the bank to post extremely low credit losses despite being Scandinavia’s most profitable specialised bank. There’s a well-known relationship between profit and risk. Peder is bothered by the questions and later tries to urge her to join in with how the rest of the media is covering the bank, singing their praises. Her criticism is going against the grain. People could start wondering if she has something personal against him. Or if she’s overcompensating… Bea sees the whole situation as proof that their relationship is untenable. You can’t mix business with pleasure like this. Then something happens that casts the whole thing in a completely different light. Bea gets an anonymous tip that she’s on the right track with the credit losses. Peder Rooth is hiding something.
