Darkness lurks under the surface of an idyllic town in this new Nordic-Noir from the fjords of western Norway.
Asgeir (Pål Sverre Hagen from Valkyrien and Kon-Tiki) has moved to an idyllic town nestled in the fjords of western Norway with his daughter. As a new member at the local police station – a role his redacted work experience would make him vastly overqualified for – he is called out to a seemingly innocuous case of small-time vandalism at the local refugee centre. However, the investigation soon places him in the orbit of the dangerous Ragna (Ine Marie Wilmann) who spends her evenings working on a far-right-wing extremist blog as "Furia".
For lovers of Nordic-Noir, Furia will be a worthy addition to the canon. Director Magnus Martens has earned his stripes revealing the dangers of rural settings in long-form series like Banshee and Fear the Walking Dead. Here he juxtaposes the threats of racism and extremism with the overwhelming beauty of the lush Norweigan landscape oblivious to the darkness lurking within it.
The first 2 episodes (49 mins each) will screen in this program. The remaining episodes are coming soon to SBS on Demand in 2021.
