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 »
Solid!!!!! Has its Flaws... But Will Keep You Glued
Some of the Reviews Here:
1. Boring: Its NOT... In Fact I found it way more enjoyable than Trapped.
2. Sloppy Police Work: Yes there is some.. But who wants a perfect show??
3. Poor Sub Titles/Dubbing: Well, guys if you cant fathom watching foreign shows in foreign languages, dont bother.. Theres a reason why there are a dozen options in Language and Subtitles. Always go ahead with original language and your preferred subtitle. You will find it more authentic. Nordic Noirs are slow paced, you wont miss a beat reading subtitles. You will probably learn a few words as well.
Lastly.. This show had me binge watch. After 2 episodes, I started disliking characters but story is way too compelling. And after episode 6, it becomes more interesting. This show could have been a master piece like Trapped(season-1), if it had more dynamic lead roles.. But I guess the actors do an OK Job.
Solid Mystery.. Solid Screen Play.. Go watch it...
The only thing thats Cliche here is, a Police KID.. Thats never in the right place.. Never.. Trapped, Safe, Bridge, Tin Star, Deadwind, La Mante, Bosch, The Break,
YOu will always find a broken Police Family with an unlikable Kid/Teen
