The Valhalla Murders - out now on Netflix worldwide!
An Icelandic TV series that I've been working on lately with Thordur Palsson ( The Valhalla Murders ) has received the first film grant from the Icelandic Film Centre. It's working title is FLATEYRI and it's based on the incredible book Nóttin sem breytti öllu ( The Night that Changed Everything) by Sóley Eiríksdóttir. As the title suggests, it's about the village of Flateyri , which is situated in Iceland's West Fjords, and a horrible avalanche that hit it in 1995, resulting in 20 deaths. It wasn't just a blow to the small fishing community, but to the whole island. Thordur and me are passionate about this difficult but heroic story. Currently, Saga Film is set to produce.
