Outside the Icelandic Parliament in Reykjavík. The Minister of Industry is walking the square to attend a meeting when someone calls out her name. It’s a man – wet from top to toe – smelling of gasoline. Before the minister realizes what to do the man grabs her and sets fire to both of them.
Andri Ólafsson – who now has become the Head of Police Investigation in Reykjavík – goes up north to investigate. This was a murder attempt but what was the motive? He is also under pressure from the Prime Minister and the Government who think this might have been an act of terrorism – as there are currently some very controversial things connected to an expansion of a power plant near the town of Siglufjörður.
Trapped is the highest rated series ever in Iceland with The Guardian calling it “seductive, involving [and] gripping.”
The series will be available on DVD on April 17 through Acorn.
