The second season of Trapped will premiere on BBC Four on Saturday February 16th at 9pm with a double-bill, it has been announced.
Trapped follows the murder of an unidentified man in small town near an Icelandic fjord, which is cut off from the outside world after a powerful blizzard. The series, which is based on an idea by Baltasar Kormákur, is produced by RVK Studios and stars Ólafur Darri Ólafsson (True Detective), Bjarne Henriksen (The Killing), Ingvar E Sigurðsson (K19 The Widowmaker), Ilmur Kristjánsdóttir (White Night Wedding), Nína Dögg Filippusdóttir (The Sea) and Björn Hlynur Haraldsson (Fortitude).
In the show’s second season, outside the Parliament in Reykjavik, a man throws himself at the Minister for Industry, setting fire to them both. Andri Olaffson, now working in Reykjavik, is assigned to the case and quickly learns the attacker was the minister’s twin. Their family’s roots are in the North, in the very area Andri had hoped to leave behind, where his old colleague Hinrika is now Chief of Police. Trouble is brewing in the town, with widespread anger at a power plant, drilling and a proposed aluminium plant. Shortly after Andri’s return the power plant’s foreman is found dead. Are the two incidents – the murder and the attack in Reykjavik – connected?
