What’s it about?
An international group of archeology students are working on the excavation sites of Gotland, researching finds from the Viking Age. But then the unthinkable happens: the body of one of the students is discovered, seemingly struck down by a Viking ritual called the Triune death. Inspector Anders finds himself faced with multiple suspects as he begins his investigation, and then more deaths occur – victims of the ancient rituals of the Vikings…
Who does Peter play in it?
Peter plays archeology professor Staffan Mellgren, and of course he’s the prime suspect! He also serves the useful plot function of explaining all the ancient Viking rituals that seem to be happening all over Gotland.
Is he anything like Martin Beck?
Not much like Martin Beck at all. He’s kind of a creepy character. Peter’s performance is terrific, though: loose, naturalistic and sporting a very professorial beard!
