The Valhalla Murders is a 2019 Netflix series that takes place in Iceland. It’s a murder mystery with a ton of plot holes and some seriously bad writing.
0 out of 10 stars. If I could give this a negative 25, I would. There are two storylines and both involve pedophiles and violent child rape where the criminals went free.
The first storyline is about a series of murders involving a state-sponsored facility for children in state care (child protective services). The facility was called Valhalla and was only in operation for two years but during those two years what they did there was unspeakable. It was run by three pedophiles, a woman who liked beating children, and a man who looked the other way as the children were raped and beaten and while one was murdered (Tommy). In present day Iceland someone is systematically murdering those adults who ran Valhalla hence the name of the series, The Valhalla Murders. The lead investigator, a woman named Kata, is uneducated, incompetent, and wrapped up in what’s going on in her personal life which brings us to the second storyline.
The second storyline is about a young girl who is gang-raped at a party which is filmed and distributed to the class. Kata’s son Kari was one of the rapists and filmed the rape on his phone. When Kata watches the video it also appears he is the one who started it. The deeply disturbing part goes beyond the violent gang rape of a young girl by six large adult males. Kata, in an effort to protect her son’s involvement, destroys his red hoodie and hides the video of the event. :0 That would be my shocked face. Such a sickening and disgusting act by any mother, let alone a police detective, is unforgivable, but she goes even further and intimidates the victim. What on earth were the producers of this series thinking???
0 out of 10 stars. One of the most disgusting and perverse series I’ve ever seen. Kata should’ve been fired and arrested. She wasn’t. Her son, rather than being arrested, is made a witness against the other rapists. Who makes a series about a mother and cop who covers up violent child rape? Netflix. 🙁
