Great podcast, unnecessary host

I really enjoyed this podcast. It’s interesting to hear a true crime investigation in another country, as along with the details of the investigation you also learn about the culture. I will say- I found Neil’s role to be unnecessary. Marit is established early on as the expert on the case, as she had been studying it for a few years. He doesn’t add anything. He just asks and Marit explains. Maybe he’s only there to help reach a broader audience through the BBC?

Incredible Journalism and story telling

The year was 1971 and in Norway’s Isdal Valley a woman was found dead. She had died in terrible circumstances and no family attended her funeral and to this day we have more questions than answers. This is the plot of Death in Ice Valley brought to us by the BBC and NRK and hosted by Marit Higraff and Neil McCarthy. Through this series Marit and Neil try to uncover just who this woman was and why she was there 40 some years after her tragic death.

Slow Nordic True Crime

A bit dry. Not a fan of the dual narrators, it’s rather irritating. A bit condescending too.

The show is slow and dark, like a bleak Nordic drama or cop TV show. In that respect, they’ve nailed the translation of that feeling/style into an audio format.

True crime fans who require bloody, fast-paced suspense should probably skip this. But if you want something a bit different, a little more meditative and immersive, this is worth a try.
