Walter Presents: Swedish drama Rig 45 – Murder at Sea.

Walter Presents is heading off shore for its next crime drama with RIG 45: MURDER AT SEA, a new claustrophobic thriller set on an isolated oil rig in the North Sea.

Following a fatal accident on Rig 45, Benthos Oils send their damage regulator Andrea out to the rig to document the accident. It’s Christmas and the rig is shut down for maintenance, only manned by a small skeleton crew consisting of 7 people when Andrea arrives by helicopter. After arriving at the rig Andrea soon realises that this isn’t going to be a routine investigation. All of the crew members carry secrets and Andrea starts to suspect that it might not have been an accident after all.  Following a second accident, communications to mainland are cut by a suspected sabotage. To make matters worse, a hurricane roars in making transportation to and from the rig impossible: Andrea is stuck on board with a killer. But who among them is it, and will she catch them before there are no crew left at all?

The international cast includes: Gary Lewis (Billy Elliot, Gangs of New York), David Dencik (Top of the Lake, Follow the Money, The Chestnut Man), Søren Malling (The Killing, Borgen, The Investigation), Lisa Henni (Fallet), Björn Bengtsson (Thicker Than Water), Joi Johannsson (Fortitude, Arctic Circle), Jakob Oftebro (Below the Surface, 1864, Monster) & Catherine Walker (Versailles, Shetland, The Deceived).

The show was previously available in the UK on StarzPlay. Here’s a brief trailer:

Season 1 (6 episodes) will air weekly on More4 from Friday, 24 June. The box set will also be available on All4 immediately after the first episode has aired.
