'The Ice Cage is a chilling, visceral thriller set in the freezing Scandinavian north that grips from start to finish.'
Anna Mohr-Pietsch, Head of Development, Met Film Production, Ealing Studios

If you liked Stieg Larsson’s Millenium Trilogy, Henning Mankell’s Wallander series or Jo Nesbø’s Harry Hole, you might also like Magnus Sandberg, a Londoner returning to Scandinavia to bury his estranged father, only to discover that he has been murdered. Tracking down the killer, Magnus is caught up in a battle with a nationalist plot to bring down the country.

Magnus Sandberg isn't Lisbeth Salander or Harry Hole, he is an ordinary guy, a reluctant action hero setting out to understand his father, but ending up in a deadly face-off with a mass murderer.

Magnus left Scandinavia as a child when his parents divorced and hasn’t been back since, so The Ice Cage is also about Magnus rediscovering his lost Nordic side - the man he could have been, the life he could have lived if he hadn’t moved to London as a child. Magnus has to come to terms with the past and pick up the threads of a parallel life with the help of local police officer Eva – the real action hero.

The Ice Cage is a gripping journey with a cinematic feel, great characters, edgy storytelling and sharp insights into Scandinavian life - thoughtful, entertaining and pacy at the same time. Unlike most Scandinavian thrillers, it's told from a British point of view, offering a dark, powerful and even humorous look at modern-day Nordic society.
