Trapped (Ófærð), directed by Baltasar Kormákur, is the most expensive Icelandic TV drama ever produced with a budget of around $7.5m.
Trapped is set in a small Icelandic town where a mutilated body is found in the bay shortly after a Danish ferry comes into port. Reasoning that the body may have been dumped from the ship, police chief Andri and his deputy Hinrika struggle to keep the rowdy passengers on board while they search for clues, and their travails are exacerbated by a mysteriously obstructive captain (Bjarne Henriksen).
Then, when a blizzard makes the snowbound town inaccessible to outsiders (including detectives flying in from the capital) it dawns upon the locals that a killer walks amongst them.
