Beforeigners is a Norwegian six-part TV series that premiered on 21 August 2019. It is the first Norwegian-language series produced by HBO Europe. The series is created and written by Eilif Skodvin and Anne Bjørnstad and directed by Jens Lien. Beforeigners is produced by Rubicon TV AS.


The series takes place in Oslo, where suddenly there are several flashes of light in the sea in Bjørvika. The flashes of light turn out to be a worldwide phenomenon where people from the past suddenly emerge in the present - people from the Stone Age, the Viking Age and the 19th century. Flashforward five years, and the so-called "beforeigners" are struggling to adapt into modern Norwegian society.

A woman with Stone Age tattoos is found dead on a beach, and police investigator Lars Haaland (played by Nicolai Cleve Broch) is put in charge of the investigation. He is assigned the newly graduated police investigator Alfhildr Enginnsdottir (played by Krista Kosonen), formerly a shield-maiden in the 11th century, as his partner. She is the first in the police service with a "multi-temporal background".
