Adapted from Icelandic crime writer Arnaldur Indridason's 2000 best-seller, Tainted Blood, this engrossing and atmospheric thriller brings Detective Inspector Erlendur magnificently to the screen. As a murder in a small town becomes linked to a notorious unsolved case, long held secrets are unearthed in an intriguing, plot twisting story that will have you gripped until the very end. Set against a backdrop of haunting landscapes and with a commandingly subtle performance by Sigurðsson in the lead role, this is Nordic Noir at its best!
