Renowned travel magazine Travel and Leisure puts The Valhalla Murders on its 13 Scandinavian binge-worthy TV shows, writing: "The first Icelandic series to appear on Netflix, The Valhalla Murders shows
viewers all around this island nation — on the trail of a killer. After
a series of seemingly unrelated murders around the country, a detective
returns home from his post in Oslo to help investigate. What happens
next takes him from Reykjavik to the harbor to the wilderness along the
Ring Road, and is based (loosely) on real events that occurred in rural
Iceland in the 1940s."
