The Ice is a tense international thriller that plays out at one of Earth’s most inhospitable places – the North Pole.
Former Special Forces commando Anna Aune has abandoned civilization, hiding out in a hovercraft at the North Pole. She’s there for the duration of the Arctic winter to document the destruction unleashed by climate change. On All Saints’ Day, the pitch-black sky is suddenly lit up by a distress flare shot up from a Chinese research station. Anna and her colleague are the only ones close enough to come to their rescue. But is the flare a cry for help –, or a warning sign?
At the Chinese base, scenes from a nightmare await them. In the laboratory, they find the researchers dead, frozen solid and covered in ice. It quickly becomes clear that they were brutally murdered. A savage power struggle has provoked a full-scale international conflict for Arctic resources. And Anna Aune is caught in the middle of it all.
