This article discusses the Netflix series The Lørenskog Disappearance, including the premise, cast and crew, release date, trailer, and more.

On September 14, Netflix is distributing worldwide the Norwegian show The Lørenskog Disappearance, created and written by Nikolaj Frobenius and Stephen Uhlander. Here is everything we know about the six-episode series so far.

The Lørenskog Disappearance premise

From Netflix: “The disappearance of Anne-Elisabeth Hagen in 2018 shocked an entire nation. This fictional series centers around the investigators, journalists, and lawyers who, in the wake of the kidnapping, are sucked into a vortex of theories, speculations, and rumors. As the mystery remains stubbornly unsolved the characters will find out just how far they’re willing to go in their quest to find an answer. This series uncovers how susceptible we all are to constructing our own conclusions in the absence of definitive truth.”

Our opinion of the premise

It sounds very interesting. Very Northern European, but in the best way possible. It sounds a bit reminiscent of a Stieg Larsson novel, like The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and that’s very appealing to me, especially when looking for new original series. I am also a big fan of crime dramas with a very bleak tone, full of twists and turns, and with grey characters instead of the traditional good guys vs. bad guys. Also, watching a non-English language series or film is very appealing at times, as it feels like a breath of fresh air — it keeps you invested since you have to pay close attention to the subtitles, and it usually features a very distinct approach than what North American movies and shows have.

The Lørenskog Disappearance release date

The six-episode series was released in Norway in August 2021 but is now getting worldwide distribution. It will be available on Netflix starting September 14, 2022.
