The hit crime series Stella Blómkvist returns for a second season, taking us deeper into the distinctively dangerous, stylish and sexy world of contemporary Icelandic noir
Picking up two years after season one, we find lawyer Stella (Heida Reed, Poldark) in a downward spiral and about to embark on a dark journey where her wits, her sense of justice, and even her belief in herself will be truly tested.
Across three interconnected storylines, each densely plotted and containing diabolical murders, we follow a frustrated and angry Stella as she continuously makes destructive choices and fails to control her long-standing obsession with Dagbjört, the Prime Minister. On top of everything, she is pregnant – and has limited options, courtesy of Dagbjört’s new legislation.
But you can’t keep a good woman down. As Stella defends her clients from injustice and pieces together clues for each murder, she hurtles towards a dramatic showdown with her arch nemesis.
