On April 19th, the drama series The Fortress (Festning Norge), written by John Kåre Raake and Linn-Jeanethe Kyed, will be released on Amazon Prime.

Feb 8, 2024

The Fortress is set in 2037. Norway has chosen to become self-sufficient behind an enormous wall and isolate itself from the rest of the world. The lucky citizens live safe and good lives, but when a deadly disease breaks out, Norwegians are trapped behind the same wall that was supposed to protect them.

- Our ambition, and the most important theme in The Fortress, is that to solve the enormous challenges the world faces, everyone needs everyone. This series shows that isolating a country, choosing to put their own inhabatants before all others, certainly is not the best solution, says writer John Kåre Raake.

The Fortress won the award for best script at the most prestigious international series festival Series Mania in France.
