Irene Huss – Season 1


A dismembered corpse washes up on the shore outside Gothenburg and the only lead Detective Inspector Irene Huss has is a striking tattoo on the victim’s torso. The investigation plunges her into a manhunt for a vicious killer – one who will strike again and is far too interested in her family.

One of Gothenburg’s wealthiest men plummets to his death from a balcony. But was it suicide or murder? Irene seeks the answer among ex-millionaires, motorcycle gangs, drug dealers and blackmailers, all while dealing with a troubled teenage daughter in the midst of a dalliance with a Neo-Nazi skinhead boyfriend.

A series of suspicious fires in Gothenburg has its citizens by the thought of a serial arsonist on the loose. Are the blazes related to a cold case that plagued Detective Inspector Irene Huss when she first came to the VCU? And are they related to the recent random stabbing of a reclusive old lady?

One nurse lies dead while another vanishes after their hospital is hit by a blackout. The only witness claims to have seen Nurse Tekla doing her rounds, but she died sixty years ago. Irene is challenged by an intriguing case studded with complex relationships and wandering ghosts.

In a small village, three members of a family are brutally murdered in their homes, and their blood used to draw upside down pentagrams on the walls. Irene pursues a lead from a local minister who has been investigating a Satanic movement. But are the culprits really members of a cult?

When dreams of big money from online gambling bite the dust, so do three men in a brutal execution. Marital tensions flare up in the normally tranquil Huss household as Irene suspects her husband of an affair and she once again finds herself torn between a case and her family.
