A comedic Scandinavian detective yarn starring Matthew Holness, written by Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris.

Knut Angström is a brooding, alcoholic, maverick Swedish detective from the tough streets of Oslo. Following the death of his wife, he is posted to the Njalsland peninsula where he becomes embroiled in a labyrinthine murder (or possibly not-murder) case which bears an eerie similarity to the Askeladden killings - a case from his distant past.

Snow. You never get used it. Even a snowman hates the snow. His own body. Falling from the sky. A reminder of death. Like standing in a rain of cold flesh. It will, eventually, even for the jolly snowman, bum him out.
