Réttur (Icelandic: [ˈrjɛʰtʏr̥], Court) is an Icelandic television series created and produced by Sigurjón Kjartansson of RVK Studios, retitled Case and The Court in English-language markets. It was picked up by NBC and producer Howard Gordon for a US remake. Seasons 1 and 2 feature a different case every episode, while season 3 is a single case that gets solved throughout the season.
Réttur is about Logi Traustason, an attorney who joins a law firm owned by business partners Brynhildur and Hörður. Together they solve court cases which often brings them all too close to their cases and subjects of the Icelandic society.

Logi is an alcoholic and quite the ladies man, finding it hard to stay true to only one woman. He and Brynhildur do not always see things eye to eye.
