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.

Filming took place this winter, which also happened to be the windiest winter in Iceland in 20 years. The severe winter weather and macabre scenery seem to play a large role in the series.
