Similar with Trapped, this Icelandic criminal series revolves around a serial killer mystery. And after the first season successfully premiered in December 2019, will there be Valhalla Murders season 2?
Released on Netflix, this follows the story of two police officers, Arnar and Kata, who try to expose murders by a mysterious serial killer. Claimed that it is inspired by true events, the serial killer is targeting people that related to boy school. The victims are brutally abused and injured before the killing.
However, unlike other slow pace mystery dramas, Valhalla Murders is not dragging too long, and quickly reveals what happens next. It is guaranteed will not make you bored.
Directed by Porour Pàlsson and Póra Hilmarsdó, the first season consists of 8 episodes, with around 50 minutes duration each. But once you start watching this, it’s really hard for you to stop, since every episode ends with something that keeps you wanting to watch another one.
This crime TV series is quite popular, since it talks about important issues like injustice, corruption, as well as abuse.
Although it is claimed to be inspired by a true story, in reality there is no murder. In remote area in Iceland, there were abuse of kids between 7 to 14 years old, who were brutally beaten by staff members. But in the show, we can see that there are murders as well.
Because of how intriguing this series is, fans really can’t wait to see how Valhalla Murders season 2 is going to roll out.

So what happens in Valhalla Murders season 1?
The main character in this show, a police named Arnar, is sent from Oslo to help to catch a serial Killer in Iceland. He is teamed up with a senior inspector, Kata, who is somehow not very happy with his involvement. But after all, they have to take their differences aside and find the killer before many more murders happen.
Both of them find a teenager who leaves a trace in a murder scene, and is very suspicious. And as things go, it is revealed that the murders are connected to the past with the child abuses that happen in the 80s.
