Each winter, snowstorms turn the mountain passes of Norway into some of the most dangerous roads in Europe, blocking vital trade routes and in extreme cases, causing fatal accidents. Helping prevent disaster is down to a rugged group of specialized salvage truck drivers, who rely on their ingenuity, wit and bravery to pull off the perfect "Ice Road Rescue"; and ensure another payday.
A great reality show, with awesome characters. Only one annoying thing
I am from Norway and I really love this series. First of all they showcase some of the really difficult weather conditions we have here in Norway, and there is not any lack of big crashes and interesting rescues.
At first watch it can look like just a regular show, but when you get to know the characters a bit you will be blessed. I am so impressed with the people in the series, they are so human. In addition the producers has done a really great job showcasing exactly that. When watching, I just want to hug Thord sometimes, he is just a great guy, and treating other people so well.
My only negative opinion on the series (would be a 10/10 if not for this) is how the editor has taken random clips together. For example, if Thord is going on a mission, you can see him drive from his garage in a flatbed truck. On the way up you see drone footage of Thord continuing to the mission in a heavyweight Volvo rescue truck. But when he arrives he is doing the mission with a third truck.. For me it is just too ridiculous..
But apart from this it is still worth watching!
