BBC Four acquires Faroese drama Trom

We’ve been keeping a close eye on Faroese drama Trom from its inception.

And now we know that BBC Four has acquired the show for broadcast in the UK.

The six-part Viaplay original is based on Jógvan Isaksen crime novels and filmed in the Faroe Islands.

It follows journalist Hannis Martinsson (Ulrich Thomsen), who unexpectedly receives a message from Sonja, his estranged daughter, claiming that her life is in danger.

Hannis reluctantly returns home to the Faroes to investigate, and discovers Sonja’s body in the bloody waters of a whale hunt. His search for answers soon brings him into conflict with the local police and uncovers a web of secrets within the close-knit community.

And, we have a trailer too…

No official word on a transmission date yet, but it’s very soon…
