Erik and Adam are identical twin brothers, living completely different lives. Erik is a broke surfer bum. Adam a successful family and businessman. When Erik seeks out his brother for the first time in 15 years, a quarrel ends with Erik and Adam’s wife, Ingrid, accidentally killing Adam. To avoid getting arrested for murder and save his brother’s family, Erik takes over Adam’s identity. It soon turns out that the biggest challenge is not avoiding getting caught – it’s pretending to be someone you’re not.

“This Norwegian imposter drama may become your new favourite foreign series. /…/ It has the makings of a breakout hit./…/ Kristoffer Metcalfe goes for something more serious but which stops short of deathly Nordic noir, with naturalistic performances and characters who feel grounded in reality despite how far the plot takes you. It’s impossible to know if this will end in tragedy or something uplifting, which is what makes it so interesting.”
“Perfect intrigue in Norwegian Twin. /…/ I’m so involved with this suspense drama and the characters that I never want it to end. /…/ The plot constantly surprises you.”
“Double trouble makes for delicious drama. /…/ A rather compelling study of human nature and deceit set against the spectacular fjords. Ugliness and beauty in one package. /…/ The juiciest elements here, though, are not in the plot, but in the human interactions it facilitates.”
“This crime series is a great imposter story. /…/ It’s all magnificently intriguing. /…/ Kristoffer Metcalfe, the creator of Twin and its principal writer, has done such a fine job setting up this drama.”
“The Norwegian coast — and this thriller — were stunning.”
