An Icelandic mystery thriller television series, Trapped has screened on BBC One on February 13, 2016. The series originally premiered on December 27, 2015 on the Icelandic public television channel RUV. It was created by Baltasar Kormákur, developed by Baltasar Kormákur and Sigurjón Kjartansson, written by Sigurjón Kjartansson and Clive Bradley. Sigurjón Kjartansson is also the executive producer, and RVK Studios is behind the production of the ten-episode series. The film was first screened at the Toronto Film Festival on September 20, 2015.
A troubled police officer investigates a gruesome and unusual murder, as a powerful blizzard descends upon the small Icelandic town where it took place. While the premise might not sound particularly original, the execution is excellent. The series is uniquely Icelandic in atmosphere, the plot twists and turns unexpectedly and leaves the viewers longing for more after the elaborately crafted cliffhangers at the end of each episode.
Current season, reviews and renewal potential
The series was regretfully tucked away to BBC Four, although it seems to have great potential for a bigger audience. Trapped premiered to 1.27 million viewers, and then slipped to 0.97 million viewers for the second episode. The series has an 8.2/10 score on IMDb and has garnered praise for high-quality directing, a wonderfully charismatic lead actor playing the chief of police, an intense plot and beautiful scenery. There is great potential in the series, and we hope that it`s renewed and moved to a more favorable BBC channel with a greater audience outreach.
