Nice Shirt's Borkur Shoots a Murderer for Icelandic TV Series 'Trapped'

Its -23 degrees Celsius and Borkur is knee deep in a snow drift looking at a dead body. A team is around him hanging on his every word and waiting for commands. This is a serious situation and its only the very start of something much bigger.

Borkur is in a helicopter looking down at the almost surreal landscape of Iceland, hes looking for clues and hints as to how all this begins.

Borkur is at the beginning of a 6-month shoot for the hit Icelandic TV crime drama Trapped. Over the harsh Icelandic winter he will be filming two episodes in conditions that would make Bear Grylls turn around and go home.

Trapped garnered critical acclaim both in Iceland and the UK - notably a great write up in The Guardian. Its airing on BBC4 and is fast becoming a must see for fans of intelligent dark drama.

Borkur also creates and films the arresting title sequence for the series.  Its mesmerising textures of the Icelandic landscape are a fitting opener for the visceral story that unfolds.
