Angstrom

Gag-packed, snow-packed and flat-packed Scando-piffle from the minds of Joel Morris and Jason Hazeley, the writers of the Ladybird Books for Grown Ups, Charlie Brooker's Wipe series, That Mitchell And Webb Look and A Touch Of Cloth.

Matthew Holness (Garth Marenghi's Darkplace) stars as Knut Angström, a brooding, alcoholic, maverick Swedish detective from the tough streets of Oslo. Following the death of his wife, Angström 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.

Also starring Nadia Kamil, Simon Kane, David Reed, Kevin Eldon, Anna Crilly, Morgana Robinson and Freya Parker.

First released: Thursday 22nd October 2020
