Airdate: Hellfjord

2013-11-14_0047Next Monday night SBS begins Hellfjord, a new offbeat comedy about a disgraced police officer from Pakistan who finds himself in far-flung Norway.

From seven of Norway’s finest directors comes the distinctive, and distinctively odd, world of Hellfjord, a place slightly out of synch with the rest of the planet. A world where family restaurants double as strip clubs, the average age is sixty seven and the sun never, ever goes down.

Urban police officer Salmander – a second generation Pakistani immigrant – who, after somewhat accidentally killing his police horse in front of thousands of children, gets relocated to this odd town on the northern tip of Norway: Hellfjord.

Hellfjord is populated by typical Norwegians, simple-minded people keenly interested in keeping to themselves. But when Salmander scratches the surface, he discovers a secret that will turn Hellfjord upside down. Maybe even inside out.

Monday, 18 November at 11.30pm on SBS ONE
