    This is an absolute classic in the making. Really, there is no need to make a list, basically everything is perfect. Characters feel realistic, they make realistic decisions, policemen are not like Sherlock Holmes, they make decisions which are impulsive, rushed, and most importantly-human. I haven't seen a town backstory so fantastically interwoven into the present plot. Also, there are like 4 or more subplots that all interwove into a single point in the final. When you look at it later, you just marvel at it, it is just so brilliant. This is a must watch for gritty and realism grounded detective tv shows fans.

    Holy shit how did this rank 100%? So disappointing. Everything about this is meh. Story, acting, dialogue, plot…it's like an unnecessarily long generic TV crime drama with tepid soap opera drama that goes no where. Scenery is great. Could have easily been pared down to 6 episodes. And still would be just ok, but wouldn't take as much time away from watching another Nordic noir more fulfilling.

    Really liked it. Visually nicely presented, cold and gritty, nice twists and detective process, however story did feel a bit slow at times. Not sure, perhaps it is meant to be so and that is just a characteristic of the Nordic noire?

    Along with The Bridge, it opened the door to Scandinavian noir. Superb.

    You can feel the cold and the sense of being trapped, but the characters are what make the first season more than watchable.

    This was awesome in every way. Overflowing with tension and menace in a gnarly way. It is kinda weird that like 3-4 people are murdered in all of Iceland in a normal year and about that many get it in a week in this small town, but the show was still great. I've noticed the male cops in Nordic noirs all either look like asthmatic lumberjacks or indie rockers with rich parents (and not the cool kind), and this is no exception, but the actors were all great.

    When I watch something that fits firmly into a genre, I'm always blown away when it manages to deliver all the things I want from it, and add additional elements which don't detract from the experience. Trapped has great performances, a compelling mystery, and a devastating emotional impact. The device of the avalanche also allows the series creator to generate a powerful atmosphere that's fairly unique. It's tragic and beautiful.

    A gritty story with many twists-and-turns that builds towards a satisfying ending that leaves no loose ends. The understated, minimalist style of storytelling means I needed more time to figure out what was going on and who was who which ultimately was a welcome change from Hollywood's spoonfeeding.

    Well-written, well-acted by a fantastic cast, keeps the viewer guessing and totally involved, plus the scenery and camera work are excellent! So glad to have found this series.

    As a person living in the Southern Hemisphere, I got to learn from watching this; the Iceland economy is exciting to know, and so is its stunning sceneries
