Acquitted tells the story Aksel Borgen, a man who has succesfully worked his way up to the top as a businessman in Hong Kong, 20 years after being found guilty, and then after acquitted of the murder of his high school sweetheart. As the keystone industry of his home town is being threatened with bankruptcy, Aksel returns to save the place that once turned its backs on him. However, the past is not forgotten.

Screenplay by Anna Bache-Wiig and Siv Rajendram Eliasen. Produced by Miso Film Denmark.
“The meandering small town mystery in Aquitted is still captivating. /…/ If you thought there were no more secrets in the village, think again.”
“Aquitted 2 is a rock solid crime drama with a scenic, if somewhat dysfunctional Norwegian village, as its backdrop. ”
“It is an equally as exciting rollercoaster writers Anna Bache Wiig and Siv Rajendram takes us on in Aquitted 2. It’s impressive how the viewer is immediately thrown right back into the joyful, quivering excitement that was season one. Meanwhile the writers – and actors – knew all along, that what we thought was the end, was only half of the story.”
