Excellent TV mini series based in Iceland
15 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember watching the first episode quite by accident - it was not something I would have normally chosen to watch, but within a few minutes of the start I was completely hooked. What a fantastic story, beautifully filmed and even now I am sure it would stand up against the best of the best thrillers shown since. Not long afterwards I saw the book on sale in WH Smiths and bought it. I had always previously found that to see a film or series and then to read the book is bitterly disappointing, even more so the other way round, but with the images of the characters from the series in my head, reading the Desmond Bagley book was an absolute delight from cover to cover. Even now, some 27 years later the book still gets read about once a year (though I almost know it word for word). Unfortunately my memories of the series are fading badly which is one reason I would be delighted should the BBC ever decide to release it on DVD. Surely it is only a matter of time. A highly recommended series to watch should you ever get the chance and a wonderful book to read.
