The second series of ACQUITTED goes deeper into exploring the aftermath of Karine’s murder. William survives the suicide attempt and denies having confessed to the murder of his daughter.
An even bigger blow comes when Eva decides to sup- port her husband. Aksel feels an overwhelming need for justice and the roles are reversed: Aksel becomes possessed by the idea of putting William behind bars, while Eva extends a hand that Aksel refuses to take. Instead, he goes to war, to fight for final acquittal and justice.
ACQUITTED season 2 examines questions of freedom. Is freedom an independent entity: legally, morally, or philosophically? Is it something we carry within ourselves, or must it be given to us by others? Is it possible to free oneself from the gaze of others?
