ACQUITTED II

FRIKJENT II

Acquitted follows the story of Aksel Nilsen, a Norwegian business man who has worked his way to the top during his 20 years in Asia having left his native town after being acquitted of the murder of his high school sweetheart.

The second season of Acquitted will dig deeper into exploring the consequences of Karine’s murder. We are going to a dark and unpredictable Lifjord. At high tempo, and with rising intensity, we will draw our characters to the outermost points. We will delve deeper into the dilemmas that all the relationships are exposed to as we address the question of Aksel’s guilt.
