The true-crime series asks the question that's been gripping the nation since his arrest in 2013: Is Eirik Jensen the best policeman in Norwegian history or is he in fact the biggest drug trafficker Scandinavia has ever seen?

Eirik was sentenced to 21 years in prison in 2017

In 2014, Eirik went to court to fight his case and retired from the force in the meantime. By 2017, he had been convicted for drug trafficking and gross corruption. The case was extremely high-profile and gripped Norway for many years.

After the Oslo District Court found him guilty, Eirik, now aged 64, was then given a sentence of 21 years imprisonment – which is the maximum penalty in Norway. He appealed the conviction, but the court ruled this out saying he was guilty of all charges.
