One year after the Russian “Silk Occupation” forced Norway to resume oil production, to supply Europe as it finds itself with a severe energy crisis, the daily life of Norwegians is still remarkably similar to the one we currently know. Nevertheless, something alien has taken root. The Strangers look very much like us, but their language and their habits gives them away and makes them noticeable. This season kicks off with an armed conflict between the Norwegian Coast Guard and a Russian Security Company, guarding the oil installation of Melkøya in Northern Norway. Conflicting interests collide. Arms are pointed at one another. No one wants to back down.
