The trailer for Sky’s Nordic Noir crime drama Fortitude has started airing and it has been announced that the show will be on Sky Atlantic in January.
The cast is stellar, led by Christopher Ecclestone and Sofie Grabol with support from Stanley Tucci and Michael Gambon and the locations and production look like they are stunning. It seems like it will be a quality programme and definitely intriguing. I do worry that the bizarre and confusing mixture of local language and and English might grate (Kenneth Branagh’s Wallander still makes no sense in that regard) but I’m looking forward to this highlight among the darkness post-Christmas.
