Kick off the New Year by binging on Walter Presents latest boxset Acquitted, which is coming to All 4 on Friday 13th January 2016.

Acquitted is a thriller starring Nicolai Cleve Broch, Tobias Santelmann, Lena Endre, Ingar Helge Gimle & Synnøve Macody Lund. It was created by Anna Bache-Wiig and Siv Rajendram Eliassen.

The series is a mesmerising thriller, set in the tantalisingly beautiful Norwegian Fjords. Amongst the breath-taking aerials of cascading green mountain massif’s framing the rugged Western coastline, a dark and haunting secret grips a close-knit, small town community.

Successful business man, Aksel Borgen (played by Nicolai Cleve Broch), returns to his home town of Lifjord to save an ailing local firm from bankruptcy. Despite being acquitted for the murder of his high school sweetheart, Karine, 20 years ago, Aksel is still haunted by his past and his return opens old wounds for the villagers. When it first launched, the series became Norway’s biggest drama hit for broadcast TV2. Since then season 2 has beaten the previous record, gaining over 40% audience share at launch.

Other series coming up this year include Scandi blockbusters such as the Emmy Award-winning series Eyewitness (also starring Tobias Santelmann who
plays Aksel’s brother Erik in Acquitted), the multi-award winning smash hit Young & Promising and the eagerly anticipated Valkyrien.
