Fortitude is a place like nowhere else - a small mining town in the wild and savage landscape of the Arctic Circle. Occasional Polar Bear attacks aside, Fortitude is a quiet town. But what has been one of the safest places on Earth is rocked by a violent crime, and what seems initially to be a straightforward, if disturbing murder investigation soon turns out to be something altogether more horrific; something which ultimately threatens the future of the town itself. Rivalries, insecurities and infidelities are all thrown into the open as the pressure of the investigation forces truths to surface. As the cold arctic darkness gives way to endless summer nights, this apparently idyllic community struggles to make sense of the murderous horror let loose in its heart.
