My wife and I quickly got hooked on Fortitude with its release pairing well with the frigid weather in the Northeast. The most obvious reference point is the recent serialized version of Fargo given that its plot centers on a murder mystery in an exceptionally cold climate but something about the show’s uneasy tone feels closer to Twin Peaks or the excellent French show The Returned. It features an unusual international cast, some gorgeous photography and writing that will keep you guessing. With so few quality shows on at the moment, that’s more than enough to hold my interest.
