In this chapter, we exemplify location studies as a method by a location reading of the Danish television drama Arvingerne/The Legacy (DR 2014–17). In the wake of Nordic Noir, this family drama was distributed internationally, broadcast in the UK on Sky Arts and in the USA by MHz Worldview, and distributed for both streaming and wholesale with English subtitles. The Danish ‘traditional’ public service broadcaster DR shot the series partly on location and in studios, resulting in a remarkable negotiation of place symbolism and the establishment of the series’ genre codes. As we will demonstrate, location studies as a method, besides discussing spatial issues of screened drama, may also reveal the genre-specific functions of place.
