Valkyrien – 2016

Go Beyond Nordic Noir - 8x52'


Ravn, a respected physician, is desperately seeking a cure for his dying wife, Vilma. When the hospital stops her treatment, Ravn continues working in secret. He is aided by the corrupt civil defence man Leif, a doomsday prepper and former patient of his. Deep underground, Ravn and Leif open an illegal clinic for treating off-the-grid patients. The clinic finances Ravn’s research into a cure for Vilma, while Leif increases his position among the criminal and the paranoid who live outside the welfare state.

Why we like it:

Valkyrien is a high-concept thriller like nothing we have seen before. Unmissable.

“If you binge-watch one series […] make it this loopy, ingenious Norwegian thriller. My current show crush”
Mike Hale –  New York Times

“If you liked Breaking Bad or  Dexter you should watch Valkyrien. […] Good and bad boundaries become blured in this “high-concept” gripping thriller.”

“One heck of a ride”
