BBC Four confirms Trom transmission date

One of the series we’ve been looking for – and indeed been following from its inception – is Trom.

Set 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.

As is tradition on BBC Four, Trom will be shown in double-bills every Saturday night.

Trom: Saturday 9th July, 9pm, BBC Four

  1. I just watched this on Danish TV and was extremely disappointed. Ulrich Thomsen is one of my favorite actors, and I do love crime shows from unusual places so expectations were high.
    It seemed they just wanted a crime show set in the Faroe Islands, and came up with a generic plot. Very unoriginal.
    I think the acting suffered from at least the Danish actors not understanding the lines in Faroese. They sounded like they were reading the lines rather than acting them. Even Ulrich Thomsen just seemed wooden.
    It would have been better with an all Faroe cast and a plot that somehow built on the culture.


  2. I have watched this 6 episodes “mini series” on BBB tv4 with reasonable format subtitles in EN, and language distinctions between Faroese and DK are lost on me. Clearly a literary source, as only certain themes are resolved, and a further series might already be in production. I will look forward to that.


  3. We really enjoyed From until the end – seemed so inconclusive I spent about an hour trying to find more episodes. Why did you do this?
