Storyline

Norwegian city police officer Salmander disgraces himself very publicly and his boss wants to sack him on the spot but Human Resources tell him he has to give three months' notice. In frustration he sends Salmander to the most remote outpost he can find, an island off the North coast with a tiny population almost entirely dependent on its fish factory. Salmander tries hard to make a name for himself in the hope of keeping his job, but there seems to be nothing for him to do at all, let alone do well. With the help of the local newspaper reporter, however, he stumbles on the community's secret. Written by silvio.mitsubishi@hotmail.com

Not for the simple minded...
15 February 2014 | by hemmettiSee all my reviews

First when I started to watch this TV series, it was bit slow and well... I didn't know what I was watching, bit like what? Is this supposed to be funny? I'm from Finland, so I have seen many Nordic TV series where people just stare each others for about minutes and then say something lame. After watching the 3 first episodes I was still confused. Should this be funny or boring? Then I slowly got it. The show is the most funny black comedy that makes you think all of the time "Is this funny?" , "Should I laugh here?". When I got my Heureka! moment, I have been laughing my guts out! Almost every scene is an a sketch, sometimes you have to rewind to see what the hell just happened, and that sucks on Netflix, but that what life is in Hellfjord! Well... Pihla Viitala as "Riina" is so good, being a Finn. I think most of the viewers did not understand what Riina said to Kobba when he thought Riina had put an spell on him on the 4th episode, but even I had to rewind that scene to get it. Well, this is one of the most hilarious TV series that I have seen in a while. It is a comedy, but the humor is so dark, that you're really not sure, if you should laugh or yawn ones head off or just die laughing, watching this show. The humor is not-so-American and obvious, more like from silent movies, like Chaplin and Tati. Most hilarious and intelligent dark comedy I have seen in a while!
