Have any of you watched this new series? I just finished the first season and I liked it, sad it was only 6 episodes. Any opinions or ideas about it? Those who can speak it, how accurate is their Old Norse? :D



Beforeigners - Wikipedia

Plot
The series takes place in Oslo, where suddenly there are several flashes of light in the sea in Bjørvika. The flashes of light turn out to be a worldwide phenomenon where people from the past suddenly emerge in the present - people from the Stone Age, the Viking Age and the 19th century. Flashforward five years, and the so-called "beforeigners" are struggling to adapt into modern Norwegian society.
A woman with Stone Age tattoos is found dead on a beach, and police investigator Lars Haaland (played by Nicolai Cleve Broch) is put in charge of the investigation. He is assigned the newly graduated police investigator Alfhildr Enginnsdottir (played by Krista Kosonen), formerly a shield-maiden in the 11th century, as his partner. She is the first in the police service with a "multi-temporal background".
