New Danish drama Norskov is coming to Channel 4 this week courtesy of Walter Presents.

The series is described as ‘a modern Scandinavian Western’ combining the ‘dark intensity and expert story lining of traditional Nordic Noir with the small-town complexities of a Western’.

Norskov stars Thomas Levin, Claus Riis Østergaard and Jacob Hauberg Lohmann, and was created by Dunja Gry Jensen.

Three childhood friends are reunited in adulthood by their drug-addled hometown having followed very different paths, and are subsequently driven apart by the very cause that bought them together.

Norskov is a town fighting for its future and its survival. The mayor’s dream of regenerating the town is close to fruition, but he struggles to relieve it of a major drug problem which has spiralled out of control and seeped into every aspect of daily life. Realising he needs outside help, the mayor asks his old friend and brother-in-law, police superintendent Tom Noack, to return home after twenty years abroad to clean up Norskov’s drug culture once and for all.

Upon his return Tom realises that the spiral of corruption that has struck much closer to home than he could have possibly imagined.

Norskov won Best Television Series at the prestigious Copenhagen Film Festival, as well as being nominated for six different awards at the Danish Robert Awards.

The series premieres on Channel 4 on 11th October at 10.35pm. Watch a preview below:
