My 2016: Ólafur Darri Ólafsson

Cinema Scandinavia: Trapped has become incredibly popular abroad. What did you think it was about the series that made it well-liked among international audiences?

Ólafur Darri Ólafsson: Everything starts with the story, and Baltasar Kormakur provided us with a great one. The crime element of the story is the hook, but I believe it is the characters and the life of the village that keeps it going. I always find that people are interested in what kind of crazy people live in Greenland, Iceland, Northern Norway, etc. Most people in our world live in cities . . .
