Win ‘Trapped’ series one on DVD!


Enter our competition for the chance to add the Icelandic mystery to your DVD collection!

The mystery may have been solved and the storm has clearly passed, however, the flurry that Trapped has left behind is still going strong. The success of the series, following its ten-episode arc on BBC Four, has made a resounding impact within the Nordic Noir genre, not to mention amongst both British viewers and a worldwide audience.

Trapped introduced us to a new male detective on the scene – joining the likes of Kurt Wallander, Martin Beck, and Carl Mørck. His name is Andri Ólafsson. In a brand new and exclusive interview with the creator, writer, and director of the phenomenal crime drama, Baltasar Kormákur talks about Ólafur Darri Ólafsson’s character: “I think there are so many clichés about these Nordic Noir cops so we wanted to create a very different character; a warm father. Andri is struggling with fatherhood in a very difficult situation. He’s not a drinker or a heavy smoker like many Nordic Noir policemen tend to be. We wanted to find a modern tone for a man in that position.”
