Professional Reviews:

"There is only one reason why "Fortitude" isn't on your TV-watching schedule: It airs on a premium cable network that no one has - or has heard of - called Pivot. If Pivot was named "HBO," "Fortitude" would probably have "Game of Thrones"-level numbers and fans. But while the obscure home of "Fortitude" doesn't exactly work in this Arctic-set thriller's favor, everything else about the show does. The cast, for example, is a veritable who's who of (mainly) British film and TV dramas: Hollywood-caliber names like Michael Gambon, Christopher Eccleston and Stanley Tucci mingle with Beric Dondarrion from "Game of Thrones" (Richard Dormer), the recently departed Nurse Jenny Lee from "Call the Midwife" (Jessica Raine), and for those "Downton Abbey" fans, there's even Lady Rose MacClare's shrew of a mother (Phoebe Nicholls) in the role of an equally frigid doctor." - Wall Street Journal

"Eventually morphing into a biological thriller with horror movie dimensions, this Nordic noir...features a superb cast..." - Video Librarian, July/August 2015

Description

  • Fortitude

    Surrounded by the savage beauty of the frozen landscape, Fortitude, a small town in the Arctic Circle, is one of the safest towns on earth. There has never been a violent crime here. Until now.

    In this close-knit community, a murder touches everyone and the unsettling horror of the crime threatens the future of the town itself. The local police chief, Sheriff Dan Anderssen (Richard Dormer), must investigate alongside Eugene Morton (Stanley Tucci), a detective who has flown into Fortitude so fast that questions are being asked about how much he knew, and when. As the two cops try to make sense of the killing, each finds reasons to mistrust and suspect the other.

    The murder is a catastrophe for the town's governor Hildur Odegard (Sofie Gråbøl), who's planning on turning the declining mining town into a site for high-end tourism. Meanwhile, for wildlife photographer Henry Tyson (Michael Gambon), who only has weeks left to live, the murder is the catalyst to unearthing Fortitude's darkest secret. As the cold Arctic darkness gives way to endless summer nights, this apparently idyllic community struggles to make sense of the horror that has been let loose at its heart.
