Prison Shift, The

In The Prison Shift we follow the trio to jail where Georg and Daniel serve time for their involvement in the death of hotel manager Gugga, their ex-boss. It doesn’t take long for Olafur to join them, for un-related charges, although as per usual, Georg plays his part in his woes. Hilarity ensues as the three deal with life behind bars and new characters get introduced.
