An award winning tale of intrigue, oddity and bogs.

Re-assigned to the remote town of Skarrild, police officer Robert is determined to bury the past and quickly earn his way back to Copenhagen. Unfortunately, country life is not as simple as he first thought. Subjugated by the community’s small town eccentricity, gossip and fierce wariness of newcomers, it’s not before long that his good intentions are tested by some very strange goings on and an inscrutable damsel in distress.
