Anyone watching this on Netflix? I'm 2 episodes in and loving it. It has the usual Scandi noir vibes, with a kind of The Returned feel.
I could listen to Icelandic all day long.

I watched the whole series in 2 days and enjoyed it very much.

It had the feel of 'Dark' - different premise but similar vibe.

Agree with the 'Dark' vibe. I've just watched the 1st episode and it looks very promising.

I just finished the series, loved it. Love a bit of bleak scenery grin

I'd like to ask a couple of questions about the ending but don't want to spoil it. I'll start a different thread.

Ooh just posted on the other thread about the Dark similarities. I'm on the last episode and only I started it this morning , a great aide for my hangover 😳.

Based on the description, I thought I wouldn't like it but it's very good.

The actor who played Mikael is amazing. He was 9 when it was filmed.

I am on episode three and totally hooked. Also thought it had a similar vibe to Dark, which is one of my all-time favourites. Look forward to seeing where it goes and if any of my theories so far are right grin

I watched the first episode and gave up. Agree with the Dark comparisons but it felt too bleak for me.
Not the scenery, but the characters. There all a bit dull aren't they?

Loved Dark and Fortitude so was hoping it would be a hybrid of the 2...

Eyjafjallajokulldottir Tue 22-Jun-21 17:20:22

I loved Dark too, probably my favourite TV series ever. Katla is quite bleak like Dark but even though I liked it the story isn't as good ( and has been done before)

Not sure, maybe she hopped on a bus to Sweden 😁🤷‍♀️

He is so good. So creepy.

I'm up to episode 6 now.

Finished binging it this morning. Much darker than I would usually watch. Bit disturbing. Agree, the Mikael actor was amazing. They were all good. I have lost sleep this week, staying up late binging, then lying awake thinking about it

Hi. New here to MN. I'm obsessed with Katla at the moment!
