In the close-knit community of Fortitude, a murder touches everyone, and the unsettling horror of the crime threatens the future of the town itself. The police chief, Sheriff Dan Anderssen (Richard Dormer), must investigate alongside Eugene Morton (Stanley Tucci), a detective who has flown into Fortitude so fast that questions are being asked about how much he knew and when. As the two cops try to make sense of the killing, each finds reasons to mistrust and suspect the other.
The murder is especially a catastrophe for the town’s governor, Hildur Odegard (Sofie Gråbøl), who’s planning to turn the declining mining town into a site for high-end tourism. For wildlife photographer Henry Tyson (Michael Gambon), who only has weeks left to live, the murder is the catalyst to unearthing Fortitude’s darkest secret.
As the cold Arctic darkness gives way to endless summer nights, the apparently idyllic community struggles to make sense of the horror that has been let loose at its heart.
In Fortitude, it’s not just the cold that kills. All-new episodes of Fortitude premiere Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Pivot TV.
