Fortitude is a town that sits amidst the breathtaking landscape of the Arctic Norwegian archipelago, Svalbard, on the edge of the Arctic Circle. A town so safe, that here has never been a violent natured crime, up until now that is.

A murder rocks the quiet town and the close-knit international community of around 800 people, begins to unravel as news spreads detailing the horror of this crime.  Only four police officers live in Fortitude, the police chief being Sheriff Dan Anderssen, (Richard Dormer), who is less than impressed when the Metropolitan Police in London send Eugene Morton (Stanley Tucci) to assist in the investigation.  Morton’s arrival in Fortitude just seemed all too quick, it leads people to question his motives.

Ep4_AS0_4644The inhabitants of Fortitude quickly begin to mistrust each other and accusations begin to fly around.  Hildur Odegard (Sofie Gråbøl) is the governor and whilst she appears to be concerned for her town, her motives are more selfish, the murder couldn’t have come at a worse time for her as she promotes her new high-end hotel carved into the ice.  

Another resident, Henry Tyson (Michael Gambon) a wildlife photographer, is dying and since people aren’t allowed to die in Fortitude, his days in the town are numbered, but he is relentless and wants to ensure he uncovers the truth before it’s too late.

    I would call it Happy town so hopefully all the miserable people would find somewhere else to live!

  2. A place called ‘Nowhere’….then at least every worried parent would know where there teenagers were when they respond to the question ‘Where have you been?’ 😉

  3. Thomas Perry on

    I would call it Worldley as it it would be a great town that celebrates all people, cultures, religions and sexuality all living together in harmony

  4. Christine Lockley on

    I’d call it “Knapsville” – a place where siestas are a part of daily life and considered the norm, a place I’d love to spend a while

    Nice Town! Everyone would have to be nice, no racism, homophobia, sexism, child abuse, animal abuse etc. Just a nice town where everyone is nice. Out motto would be Live & Let Live 🙂
