A police investigator named Arnar travels from Norway to assist in the investigation surrounding Iceland's first serial killer. He works with Kata, the officer in charge of the case, and together they must race against the clock to find the murderer before it's too late. While the victims initially seem unrelated, the trail leads them to an abandoned boys' home named Valhalla, where some horrifying events occurred 35 years earlier.
The detectives don't carry guns because most Icelandic Police Officers don't carry guns in the course of their day-to-day work. They are all trained in firearms, and police vehicles have firearms in special lockers, in case firearms are needed. There are also special teams of police who do carry firearms in the normal course of their duties. See more »
Icelandic Thriller at its best
I thought this was a brilliant piece and didn't want it to end. Right until the final episode you are held in the dark. There are a few gaps and weaknesses but on the whole it is wonderfully suspenseful. I hope they make another series with Kata and Arnar as the lead detectives in a new Nordic police thriller.
