Iceland is a quiet country, a place with a small number of people but also a play with big hearts, and for the past few years, Björn Thors has been one of the leading actors in the country, winning the big hearts of the Icelandic people. Though the actor only started in show business in the 21st century, he’s managed to become one of the respected and box office gold actors in Iceland.

Björn Thors was born on 12 January 1978 in Reykjavik, Iceland, where he lived all his life and still currently resides with his small and happy family. Completing his education in Iceland, Björn only set his eyes on a career in show business later on in his life. The actor made his debut in 1995, but he formally started his career in front of the camera in 2005.

Just because of the projects he’s been able to be part of over the years, Björn Thors was able to develop a fan following in his home country of Iceland. But it seems the actor will be seeing some new fan following, outside of the country this time, due to the fact Netflix is bringing his new show The Valhalla Murders to the word through the streaming service.

Björn Thors Plays Arnar in the Netflix Series The Valhalla Murders

The Valhalla Murders came from the mind of Þórður Pálsson who created the show and also directed it. The show is about a murder in Iceland where the single murder connects to a serial killer, which is the first such instance in the history of Iceland. The murders are beyond the handles of the people in the police department, which results in someone from the outside coming in to help them.

Nína Dögg Filippusdóttir’s character, Kata, is the police officer in charge, and to help her out with the investigation, a detective from Oslo is brought in. Arnar, played by Björn Thors, is from Iceland who was living in Oslo, he is the detective tasked with bringing the murderer in, and the cat and mouse game making up for the first season of the series.

The Valhalla Murders is a joint production with Netflix contributing to the $5 million-plus budget of the project. The show already premiered during Christmas time, but Netflix will be releasing the entire eight-episode first season on 13 March 2020. The show was critically acclaimed, so you better bring your detective hats along because this is one hell of a mind-bender.
