Bordertown (Sorjonen), starring Ville Virtanen, begins filming season two this August in Lappeenranta, and concludes in Helsinki in November.
The series follows Detective Inspector Kari Sorjonen (Ville Virtanen) who relocates to the small town of Lappeenranta near the Russian border for a quiet life as his wife recovers from a brain tumour. But life is not very peaceful on the border between two worlds.
Kari Sorjonen (Ville Virtanen) will investigate five new cases for the show’s ten-part second season, which is slated to air on YLE in autumn 2018. Returning cast members include Anu Sinisalo, Matleena Kuusniemi, Olivia Ainali, Lenita Susi, Laura Malmivaara, and Mikko Leppilampi.
Bordertown was presented with three Kultainen Venla awards by the the Finnish Television Academy in January for Best Drama, Best Actor (Ville Virtanen) and Best Actress (Anu Sinisalo).
