'Post Mortem: No One Dies in Skarnes': Release date and spoilers of Norwegian dark comedy show
Netflix has a wide catalog of international shows and the streaming service is making it possible for foreign directors to showcase their work on the world’s biggest streaming platform. There have been a lot of shows that were really successful despite being in non-English languages.
Shows like ‘Lupin’, ‘Who Killed Sara?’ and ‘Dark Desire’ have been some of the best-reviewed and popular titles on Netflix. Apart from getting good reviews, the aforementioned projects also gained a lot of attraction from viewers.
Netflix is set to expand its international catalog by adding one more series to its platform. Titled ‘Post Mortem: No One Dies in Skarnes’, the Norwegian series revolves around a woman named Live Hallangen (Kathrine Thorborg Johansen) who suddenly wakes up after being declared dead. However, things are pretty different now because she has changed a lot and that’s something that she should adjust to.
The premise of the dark-comedy looks really intriguing and seems like it would be a worthy addition to Netflix. Here’s everything you need to know about the series.
Release date and how to watch
The Norwegian series will be premiering exclusively on Netflix on Wednesday, August 25. According to the Netflix press site, the show will air at 3 am EST. Viewers can download the app from the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store.
“Live Hallangen is declared dead. Hours later she suddenly wakes up on the forensic table. A dark, insatiable hunger has awoken in her. Meanwhile, her brother Odd tries to keep the family-driven funeral home afloat, but the stagnant death rate in the small Norwegian town of Skarnes makes it impossible. Live has to learn to control her new dangerous nature and decide if she is willing to sacrifice people’s lives for her own survival, which ironically goes hand in hand with the survival of the family business.”
The lead role of Live will be played by renowned Norwegian actress Kathrine Thorborg Johansen. The actress is known for making appearances in various Norwegian shows and made her Netflix debut with the hit TV series ‘Ragnarok’. Meanwhile, Elias Holmsen Sørensen will be playing her brother, Odd, in the series.
Other stars to appear on the show include Andrée Sørum (Reinert), Kim Fairchild (Judith), Sarah Khorami (Rose), and Terje Strømdahl (Arvid).
