Viaplay has announced Furia, an eight-part international thriller written by Emmy Award Winner Gjermund Stenberg Eriksen (Mammon) which explores the violent and disturbing world of right-wing extremism.
In Furia, a shocking killing in an idyllic Norwegian town leads police investigator Asgeir (Pål Sverre Hagen) to undercover cop Ragna (Ine Marie Willmann) as she infiltrates a nationalistic subculture. A journey into a horrifying underworld of hatred follows as a terrorist plot is revealed that reaches to the very heart of Europe.
Viaplay Chief Content Officer, Filippa Wallestam, said: “It’s uncommon to see a female lead character who appears to be driven by such extreme rage as Ragna, which makes her a grimly fascinating focus for this complex and topical series.”
“This is noir from a truly dark place. We have brought together an incredible line-up of Norwegian talent to tell an ambitious story that will engage and unsettle streaming audiences across the Nordic region and beyond.”
Furia, directed by Magnus Martens (Jackpot), premieres on Viaplay across the Nordic region in 2021.
