This is the one we’ve been waiting for.
The excellent Icelandic crime drama – series one of which won our Best Crime Drama of the Year in 2016 – premiered in its native Iceland late last year, and ever since then fans of the show have been waiting patiently until its emergence in the UK. Now the wait is over.
Last week, during the broadcast of Australian crime drama Safe Harbour, BBC Four showed a trailer for series two of Trapped, which got everyone into a lather.
Here’s a trailer:
Outside Parliament in Reykjavik, a man throws himself at the Minister for Industry, setting fire to them both. Andri Olaffson, now working in Reykjavik, is assigned to the case and quickly learns the attacker was the minister’s twin. Their family’s roots are in the North, in the very area Andri had hoped to leave behind, where his old colleague Hinrika is now Chief of Police. Trouble is brewing in the town, with widespread anger at a power plant, drilling and a proposed aluminium plant. Shortly after Andri’s return the power plant’s foreman is found dead. Are the two incidents – the murder and the attack in Reykjavik – connected?
Enough of that. HERE WE GO!
Trapped (Series 2): Saturday 16th February, 9pm, BBC Four
