The eponymous arctic town is still reeling from the terrifying events of season one when a blood red aurora blankets the sky – a portent of a new menace that arrives in the form of a ritualistic serial killer from legend.
Governor Hildur (Sofie Gråbøl) has been replaced by a toad-like bureaucrat with a hidden agenda; Vincent (Luke Treadaway) is struggling to recover from his encounter with the wasps; and Dan (Richard Dormer) has gone completely off the rails, as though possessed by a demonic force.
This strange, slow burn Nordic thriller does jump the shark in its second year, but there are enough gory shocks and twists to forgive the occasional narrative lapse.
