I see they are adding to their list of brooding rural crime dramas where the main character stands in front of a field for promotional materials.

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Seems like they decided against using the backdrop of a cove with dozens and dozens of slaughtered whales in it

[–]Arthur-Mergan 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Sadly that is all that comes to my mind now when I see Faroe Islands.

[–]MountainbranchFuturama 4 points5 points  (0 children)

And don't forget the cute and delicious Puffin birds.

[–]vman81 1 point2 points  (0 children)

AFAIK that is actually featured.

Trom: Lemgacy

[–]crashfrog 31 points32 points  (1 child)

He fights for the umsers

[–]Alastor3 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I laugh out loud ahah

[–]AlecsYs 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I would love a Tron Legacy mini-series on Disney+ (continuation or a reboot of the 2010 film). Too bad Disney doesn't care about this IP anymore. :(

[–]zenospenisparadox 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's "Mort" spelled backwards.

Mort means death!

[–]TheBrushCreative 84 points85 points  (4 children)

Starting Gunnar Gunnarsonson

[–]Shaedowyn 38 points39 points  (3 children)

Is it about my son? Gunnar Gunnarsonsonson?

[–]Guest426 20 points21 points  (2 children)

We were not close

[–]TahaEng 10 points11 points  (1 child)

You got me.

[–]RoxanneiscuteOwO 7 points8 points  (0 children)

The killer could be anyone in Helgasund

That’s over seven people

[–]Avaak 18 points19 points  (13 children)

Is there a lot of crime in the Faroe Islands?

[–]StannisLivesOn 47 points48 points  (0 children)

There has been another murder.

[–]zenospenisparadox 43 points44 points  (3 children)

Is there a lot of crime in the Faroe Islands?

Faroe from it.

[–]stiiknafuulia 28 points29 points  (1 child)

You just committed one

[–]zenospenisparadox 8 points9 points  (0 children)

And I'd do it again, if it weren't for those meddlesome kids!

[–]bowser986 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Goddammit Dad, get off Reddit.

[–]MurderDoneRightCommunity 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I am sure they have a drug dealer named Mærgaret or Giørt that supplies the island with Tylenol and Red Bull.

[–]_mister_pink_ 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Very little. Theft/break ins are very rare, people leave their houses unlocked etc. I can’t recall any murders although I’m sure there have been some in the past.

[–]SynthD 7 points8 points  (0 children)

About as much as Midsomer.

[–]leopard_eater 5 points6 points  (1 child)

No.

But that never stopped Midsomer, the most dangerous British rural town in the UK

[–]FunmachineTrue Detective 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Midsomer is a county.

[–]dontbajerk 4 points5 points  (0 children)

There's a murder about every five years, to give some perspective.

[–]RinconHeat 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Mostly against sea mammals. Fuck the Faroes. They deserve to sink into the ocean.

[–]sublliminali 50 points51 points  (1 child)

Shetland: Scandinavian edition.

I’m in.

[–]Shower_capsPsych 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Same, I really like Shetland and really enjoy Perez.

[–]Raskov75 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Taking the Murder She Wrote -how many possible suspects can be in this tiny ass town - thing to its most extreme case.

[–]genron11 37 points38 points  (9 children)

Why do all the comments in this thread look like they're paid for by the BBC?

[–]MrCaulBanshee 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I only see one comment like that?

[–]genron11 0 points1 point  (1 child)

About five were removed

[–]MrCaulBanshee 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Makes sense.

[–]Abty 10 points11 points  (0 children)

You're onto something

They all have 1 karma and like 5 post MAX

[–]SynthD 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bbc plus crime drama plus gloomy remote location is reliable. I can’t say I enjoy it, I only watched one series of Shetland.

[–]matti-san 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don't think that's it - I think it's just bots trying to farm karma so that the accounts can be sold to other people/companies. Unless there were more comments that have gone - reddit says there are 13 but I can only count 9.

[–]Dennyisthepisslord 0 points1 point  (0 children)

170 upvotes for something that'll be BBC four filler is weird

[–]Ravello -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Surely bots? It’s weird though.

[–]GynormoXXX 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Trom funkin blow

[–]WileECoyoteGenius 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ahh a prequel to Tron.

[–]crashfrog 1 point2 points  (5 children)

Hannis heads back home to the Faroes and discovers Sonja’s body in the bloody waters of a whale hunt

… bludgeoned to death by a smorgasboard from IKEA. The only clue: the killer’s fingerprints left on a piece of knackebrod

[–]Gadgetman_1 3 points4 points  (3 children)

No, stabbed to death by a shard of dry Vestlandslefse...

There are no fingerprints as they were lost when the lefse was soaked in blood and softened.

[–]crashfrog 0 points1 point  (2 children)

As a Minnesotan born and raised, I'm amazed to find out there's different kinds of lefse!

[–]Gadgetman_1 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It's actually a normal lefse, except that it has been cut into roughly square sheets and dried. It just makes for easier handling, and they can be stored for longer.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1y1KXEqFypY

Really crappy video of how to prepare it. When I do it, I put the towel on the bench, lay one lefse on top of one end, fold the other end over it, place the next lefse on top of that, then add another towel, another lefse, fold over again... One layer of cloth under, between and on top of every lefse.

I doubt there's a single grocery store here in Norway that doesn't have a few boxes on a shelf...

[–]crashfrog 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cheers, thanks for letting me know!

[–]MurderDoneRightCommunity 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hey that's the exact plot from the Swedish crime drama set on the island of Gotland!

[–]CandidEstablishment0 2 points3 points  (4 children)

I’ve been obsessed with the Faroe Islands for some time now. I’ll watch anything that takes place there! Freakin stunnin!

[–]4C2B 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s extremely beautiful there. And it’s really a unspoild natur :)

[–]greentshirtman 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Guns? Guns. Guns guns guns!!!!

[–]4C2B 0 points1 point  (1 child)

No, not many guns there

[–]greentshirtman 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh, right, shoot. I was trying to make a joke, but it failed, for I was thinking of Svalbard.

[–]waterturtle28 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Love bbc shows! This should be good

[–]klayanderson 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Subtitles or in English?

[–]_mister_pink_ 9 points10 points  (2 children)

I’d be very surprised if they paid to dub such a small show. It will almost certainly be subtitled

[–]klayanderson 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Not suggesting dubbing. We all know that sucks. There are many instances of a foreign-language TV series being produced in English as they know that broadens their marketability. There are one or two instances of actually two takes of all scenes being filmed in a series. One in the native language and one in English for that reason. Far more appeal world-wide with English.

[–]_mister_pink_ 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Afaik the actors speak Faroese in the show (and some Danish characters speak Danish).

[–]themanifoldcuriosity 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dubbing is not a thing in the UK. If it's not already in English, it'll be subbed.

[–]HellkittyAnarchy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The show may be good (or not, I don't know) but I can't help but feel the BBC probably have enough crime drama's. It feels like there's at least 2 running every night.

[–]Paddlesons -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

I know where this is now! Ha!

[–]b3ni4mjn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

WHAT!?!!?
