I’ve just read that Sky Atlantic is carrying on with its Nordic Noir inspired programming and is making a murder mystery set within the Arctic Circle region of Iceland, which will be called Fortitude.
The cast will include The Killing‘s Sofie Gråbøl as a politician, alongside Christopher Ecclestone, Michael Gambon, Stanley Tucci and other impressive names.
I am interested to see how Sky will make the programme set in Iceland with no Icelandic cast members…or perhaps they just haven’t been announced yet. In any case I hope it makes slightly more sense than the BBC’s version of Wallander (I just couldn’t get past the weird language situation, give me subtitles any day!) and I am very curious. And will Sofie get another iconic jumper to add to her wardrobe?

The production company Tiger Aspect has more details of the plot and describes the 13 x 1 hour episode series as ‘Sky’s most ambitious drama to date’. Fortitude at Tiger Aspect
