One part thriller, one part character driven drama, the 2019 Norwegian drama-thriller TV series Twin is the story of Erik and Adam (both played by Kristofer Hivju of Game of Thrones fame), identical twin brothers, who live completely different lives. Erik is a broke surfer bum. Adam is a successful family and business man And when Erik seeks out his brother for the first time in 15 years, a quarrel ends with Adam’s wife, Ingrid (Rebekka Nystabakk), accidentally killing her husband. To avoid getting arrested for murder, and save his brother’s family, Erik takes over Adam’s identity. However, it soon turns out that the biggest challenge is not avoiding getting caught – it’s pretending to be someone you’re not.

Featuring high production values and set against the stunning backdrop of Norway’s Lofoten Islands, Twin was a passion project between Hivju and lead director/co-writer Kristoffer Metcalfe, which they developed over 15 years since starting out in Oslo together in their early 20’s.
