The BBC has acquired the rights to the Icelandic television series Trapped. The ten-part series will be shown on BBC Four.

The series is produced by RVK Studios, a production company owned by internationally acclaimed director Baltasar Kormákur. Set in the small fishing village of Siglufjörður, located in North Iceland, the drama follows the investigation of the murder of an unknown man who is found in the ocean. Soon after, a blizzard hits the town, making the only road in or out impassable and trapping the residents – and the murderer – inside the village.
