Fortitude is a place like nowhere else on Earth: a frontier boomtown in the wild and savage landscape of the far north. Sheriff Dan Anderssen leads a world-class search-and-rescue team, but now finds himself investigating the shocking murder of a prominent member of the community. What's more, he's forced to work alongside DCI Eugene Morton, a British murder detective who's just flown in. As they search for the killer, each of these cops finds good reason to suspect and mistrust the other. And as things turn out, this murder won't be the last...
Multi plot madness
- Fortitude: Series 1 review by JD
There are so many plot lines that it takes 2 episodes to get going. 6 writers, how does that work? Some of the plots are intriguing some tedious or inevitable (romantic interest and affairs being compulsory for this genre) Maybe get rid of 4 of the writers. The worst thing about this film however is the acting of half the cast. The best thing is the production. Some shots of the arctic wilderness are awesome, some of the special make-up horrific. The 12 episodes go by quickly but compared with other series that Sofie Grabol have starred in, it is not great. A lot of loose ends which suggest a second series, I hope not. I do hope to see more from this production unit. It is a proper 18, scenes of torture, rape, murder, suicide and bears eating trapped men.
