Ravn, a respected physician, is desperately seeking a cure for his dying wife, Vilma. When the hospital stops her further treatment, Ravn fakes Vilma’s suicide and continues working in secret. He is aided by the corrupt civil defense man Leif, a doomsday prepper and former patient of his. Deep underground, Ravn and Leif open an illegal clinic for treating off-the-grid patients. The clinic finances Ravn’s research into a cure for Vilma, while Leif increases his position among the criminal and the paranoid who live outside the welfare state. As Ravn has to cross more and more ethical lines, he frequently clashes with Leif, but clings to the hope of bringing his beloved Vilma back. Will love prevail? Or will Leif’s fantasy of societal collapse become a reality?
Valkyrien is a unique, high-concept Nordic noir.
Episodes 5 & 6
A patient arrives at the clinic with a deadly virus. Vilma becomes infected, and Ravn must make the most difficult choice of his life. While Unn works hard to gain control of the infection, Leif implements his own plan. A pandemic is, after all, a threat he and his like-minded comrades have been preparing to face.
Vilma has disappeared. Ravn and Leif must find her before someone else does. While they desperately hunt for her on the surface, the police officer Per breaks into Leif’s tunnels and bomb shelters below ground. In the clinic, Teo finds himself completely alone.
