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.
The 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.
Fortitude is full of darkness, deceit and now death. Watch all eleven episodes and find out what the truth Fortitude is hiding in the seemingly idyllic setting and watch as a town is ripped apart both physically and psychologically in the dark taut thriller.
Fortitude is available on Blu-ray and DVD on 1st June
