If the gruesome events of season one weren’t enough to make the remaining residents of Fortitude pack up and leave, they’re about to get plenty of reasons to think again.

It’s nine weeks on and governor Hildur (Sofie Gråbøl) is determined to stay put, despite the advice of the government official (Ken Stott) sent to tidy up the mess.

But with a strange ‘blood aurora’ illuminating the night sky, a grisly discovery in the snow and sheriff Dan Anderssen missing, all is still not right in Fortitude…

Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones) and Dennis Quaid join the cast for what promises to be another intriguing trip to the frozen north.
