Brilliant law firm CFO Ida Waage finds a €450,000 invoice on her desk in WALTER PRESENTS: WITCH HUNT (Heksejakt), but could it be a scam? Who can she trust? Should she blow the whistle?
Ida Waage is a trusted and loved CFO in one of Norway’s biggest law firms, Biermann and Gude, when a suspicious invoice lands on her desk. Ida discovers that the invoice is an attempt to launder a money transaction on behalf of the firm’s biggest client, the billionaire Peer Eggen, one of Norway’s richest and mightiest businessmen. When Ida confronts Eggen’s chief lawyer, Jan Gunnar, he admits that this practice is over the line, but asks Ida to stay loyal to the company. Peer Eggen is, after all, the firm’s most important client. Jan threatens a compromised Ida, who signed the first invoice, and asks her to sign. If she doesn’t, he can’t be held responsible for the consequences, and Ida soon discovers that giant law firms will stop at nothing to protect their image…
Lead actress Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, who starred in the hit TV show Westworld, won Best Actress at Norway’s Golden Screen awards for her role as lawyer Ida. The series was created by the writers behind 2018’s Golden Bear-winning film Utoya – July 22.

Can you tell me why Witch hunt is not available on all4 even though TV mag says it was available from 15th October.
Yes. Channel 4 have had issues with subtitled programming since a fire at Red Bee Media last month so any new subtitled shows have been delayed.
Channel 4 Catch-up on Sky also seems to have gone adrift. There was a new Israeli series due to start a couple of weeks ago which must have been affected by the fire.
When will issue be resolved.
All we can tell you is what Channel 4 themselves are putting out. This is their latest press release: https://www.channel4.com/press/news/whats-happened-access-services-channel-4 The 100 – which was originally due to air on 15 October on 4Music has now been pushed back from 29 October to 5 November which suggests at least some problems are going to persist into next month. We haven’t yet had any news about Angel of Death – which is due on All4 next Friday – being delayed but I wouldn’t be surprised if that too is pushed back a week or so.
