The Last Doomed

25 Norwegians were executed after WW2. Who were those 25 people and why them? And why did Norway choose to reinstate death penalty, execute people for 3 years, and then stop?

This documentary tells the stories of the post-war tribunals in Norway. It is driven by people whom through personal or professional connections are tied to the story of the death penalty.

They go back in time to find answers. Back to the crime scenes. They explore evil. Exclusion. Hatred. Coincidences.

The Last Doomed is series about choices we make as humans, choices we make as a nation. Fatal choices in times of crisis.
