For Life

For Life

From the Emmy Award-winning writer Gjermund S. Eriksen, For Life is a fresh, distinctive, and entertaining procedural crime series.

This series is about the controversial and brilliant investigator Victoria Woll in the present and in the future. In each episode, Victoria and her partners solve a crime in the present. Fifteen years later, Victoria is serving life in prison.

The individual cases in the present become pieces of a puzzle as the audience learns the true meaning of the series’ controlling idea: Life is lived forwards but understood backwards. Piece by piece.
