Series 2 - Episode 9



Everything you’d want from a doomy, chilly crime drama’s final episodes is present in this closing double bill. Amid the inevitable deluge of revelations to explain the murders, the poisoning of the water supply and how the two are linked – be aware that some of those secrets are deeply disturbing, and not just spoken but shown to us in flashback – there are profound moments of reflection and grief. One’s never left feeling that the dark subject matter has been used for cheap thrills.

That said, those cold, angry Icelandic vistas do play host to a classic race against time, when the killer has been revealed, but there’s one more potential victim who could still be saved.


Andri has to contend with keeping Thorhildur safe now she has handed the police the lead they so desperately needed, so he must get her out of town before the killer realises what has happened. In Icelandic and English.
