But who is the strange Nordic walking across the frozen wastes? In a fur hat. With a chisel.
Days later a man is found dead in a barn nearby with a bizarre message carved on his forehead.
Enter Inspector Sandra Larsson in her authentic, rustic knitwear.
With her own personal life unravelling before our eyes, it is up to her to follow the pattern of a mystery with many holes.
Cast on multi-award winning comedy theatre duo LipService, Maggie Fox and Sue Ryding.
Cast off your preconceptions as they weave a web of mystery, that will leave your nerves frayed!
Callout to local knitting groups: The Inspector Norse set is partially knitted and the production team would like your knitting to decorate it. Please email email@example.com to get involved!
