Rig 45: Murder at Sea Series Premiere (More 4 Friday 24 June 2022)



Walter Presents – which showcases the best foreign language drama series from around the world – continues with this tense thriller from Sweden. Following a fatal accident on an isolated rig in the North Sea, major corporation Benthos Oil fly out overworked damage regulator Andrea Burell to investigate. Andrea has the uneasy understanding that the company would prefer the accident to be logged as self-inflicted. Once she arrives at the rig, she finds a skeleton crew, complicated relationships, and antagonism, especially from the chief engineer Douglas.

The boss Mikkel pressures her to move fast so he can get on with important repairs as a hurricane is on the way. Andrea suspects that Ritva, the employee who died in a fall, was inebriated on the job, but what was the problem with the harness? The differing stories from the crew create suspicion. Can she finish the job in time to get off the rig before the hurricane hits?

Starring Catherine Walker, David Dencik, Bjorn Bengtsson, Lisa Henni, Joi Johannsson, Gary Lewis, Jakob Oftebro and Judith Roddy.

In English and Swedish with English subtitles.
