Valkyrien – 2016

Go Beyond Nordic Noir - 8 x 52'


Ravn, a respected physician, is desperately seeking a cure for his dying wife, Vilma. When the hospital stops her treatment, Ravn continues to work 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 to treat off-the-grid patients. The clinic finances Ravn’s research into a cure for Vilma, while Leif improves his position among the criminals and the paranoids who live outside the welfare state.

Why we like it:

A must-see, high-concept Nordic thriller which brilliantly plays on the twisted relationship between Ravn and Leif, a duo not unlike another one we’ve seen in Breaking Bad.
