Post Mortem: No One Die in Skarnes
Oh god, another Norwegian zombie comedy series on Netflix? It never stops with the Norwegian zombie comedies on Netflix! Enough already, we’re drowning in them! Seriously, though, one of the best things about Netflix is the random weird international stuff you stumble across. And this seems like one of the weirdest. It’s about a woman who dies and comes back to life with an insatiable thirst for blood. Her family runs a funeral home, but the town’s low death rate is making business really difficult.

Scandinavians are very good at dark comedy.
