Renowned philosopher Slavoj Zizek was a guest at the popular podcast Red Scare, and had this to say: “I think serious civilization is defined by two things: That you have good detective writers, and good TV series. That’s why Iceland, Reykjavík, and so on, I love them, my favorite place almost in the world. They have now The Valhalla Murders, and so on, excellent TV miniseries.”
