A gripping Nordic Noir modern war thriller telling the rarely-told story of Norway’s military involvement in the Afghanistan war.

First shown on Netflix in the UK in 2016, and rated 8.2 on IMDB.

Winner of the Prix Europe Award for Best European TV Mini-series of the Year and the award for Outstanding Actor in a Drama TV Series (Aksel Hennie) at the 2017 Monte-Carlo TV Festival.

How far should you go in the name of peace?

24-hours after returning home to Norway after his tour of duty in Afghanistan, Lieutenant Erling Riiser (Aksel Hennie) from the Special Forces receives a mysterious text message from a senior officer. A woman’s life is in danger, and he is ordered to kill an Afghan man who has her hostage.

After rescuing the woman, Riiser soon discovers his superior did not send the message.

Unable to trust anyone, Riiser finds himself caught in the middle of a complex political killing game. He must find out who is sending him the orders to kill, and why he is being used as their hitman.

With flashbacks to Riiser’s experience during the war interwoven throughout, Nobel places a dramatic conspiracy plot at the centre of the story of Norway’s war in Afghanistan.
