HBO Nordic’s first original series, 2019 supernatural drama Beforeigners screens at SBS on Demand this Friday.
All six episodes available to stream. In Norwegian with English subtitles. A second season was also produced.
A new phenomenon starts happening all over the world. Powerful flashes of light occur in the ocean, and people from the past appear from three time periods – the stone age, the Viking age, and the late 1800s. No one understands how this is possible, and the people from the past, called ‘beforeigners’, have no memory of what’s transpired. A couple of years later, Alfhildr (Krista Kosonen) – who comes from the Viking Age – is teamed up with burned-out police officer Lars Haaland (Nicolai Cleve Broch) as part of the police department’s integration program. While investigating the murder of a woman with Stone Age tattoos, Lars and Alfhildr make unexpected discoveries.
Friday, 5 March on SBS On Demand.
