Arrow Films' Noir label is pleased to confirm that the game-changing Welsh drama Hinterland will be released as a DVD box set and digital download from 26th May 2014.

Hailed as Wales' home-grown answer to the all conquering Danish detective thriller The Killing, Hinterland has already been bought by Danish Broadcaster DR - the company behind many of the most successful Nordic Noir titles, including The Killing, Borgen, The Bridge, Arne Dahl and many others.

Following several US-remakes of the aforementioned foreign language titles, it comes as a further coup that Hinterland has also been snapped up by Netflix for US distribution.

From the windswept sand dunes of the coastal lowlands to the badlands of the hinterland, Aberystwyth is the setting for this brand new 4-part drama series. Into this remote corner of West Wales steps the brilliant but troubled DCI Tom Mathias (Richard Harrington), following a decade in London's Met. On the run from his London past, Mathias isolates himself on the outskirts of a town filled with secrets as dark and destructive as his own.

Isolated farms and close-knit villages make up a part of the world where history, myth and tradition come face to face with the modern and contemporary - panoramic vistas and quaint façade hide a multitude of sins. This is a place that lives according to its own rules, a place where grudges fester, where the secrets of the past are buried deep.

Bilingually broadcast in English and Welsh (with English subtitles), Hinterland is the first UK produced series released by Arrow's Noir imprint. When in production, all speaking scenes were shot twice - once in English and once in Welsh. S4C aired the fully Welsh version in early 2014 to mass acclaim.

Episode Details

  • Episode One - Having just left the Met police in London, DCI Mathias finds himself holed up in a caravan on the outskirts of Aberystwyth, a university town on the west coast of Wales sandwiched between the Irish sea and a vast mountainous hinterland. He hardly has time to unpack before being called to the scene of a brutal attack at an isolated chalet in the sand dunes. The victim is believed to be a 64 year old God-fearing woman, but she is nowhere to be found
  • Episode Two - At a remote hinterland farmhouse the body of keen photographer Idris Williams is found following an anonymous call to the police. At first it seems that the reclusive Idris was the victim of a burglary that went horribly wrong, but Mathias' instincts tell him otherwise
  • Episode Three - High in the hills above Aberystwyth, the body of an unidentified young man is found at the bottom of a lake in a disused quarry near the village of Penwyllt
  • Episode Four - The body of a young student is found at the exact centre of a vast expanse of marshlands by two young boys. Dressed immaculately in a scarlet dress, the body seems to have been deliberately placed there. Mathias, struggling with his own demons from the past becomes more emotionally connected to the case than is wise, a fact not missed by his detective partner Mared and Chief Super Prosser.
  • None or TBC
