Trapped, a sophisticated new Icelandic police drama, is a Netflix hit. The series is set in a small town with an unpronounceable name, in the middle of winter, with the 2008 financial crisis still fresh in their minds. The star of the series is the burly police chief. His life is mundane until a torso is fished out of the fjord. This happens when the weekly ferry arrives and everybody is a suspect. A storm also sets in, cutting the town off from the rest of the county. All this makes a moody crime drama. Binge watch two seasons on Netflix.
