Review

William Wisting (Sven Nordin( is a well-meaning, damaged detective haunted by the death of his wife, who hulks around the snow in the Norwegian town of Larvik, looking a bit like Burt Lancaster and trying to ensure his grown-up kids don’t hate him because he’s Devoted to His Job.

Actually, Wisting is a welcome addition to chilly winter nights on BBC4, though the story might be formulaic… a serial killer has been murdering young, attractive, blonde women after keeping them prisoner in wells.

But the bleak, snowy setting gives the drama edge when a body is found in a field of Christmas trees. As the festive celebrations hit their stride two FBI agents (played by Carrie-Anne Moss and Richie Campbell) arrive to investigate the victim’s possible links to a dangerous wanted man. Meanwhile, Wisting’s journalist daughter has a case of her own.

Summary
