Viaplay Finds Cold Courage From Pekka Hiltunen

MTG Studios has announced that eight-part international crime drama Cold Courage, adapted by David Joss Buckley (Hinterland) from the best-selling novel by Pekka Hiltunen, will premiere on streaming service Viaplay in 2019.

Directed by Agneta Fagerström-Olsson (Wallander), Cold Courage follows two young Finnish women in London who are drawn inexorably together by the Studio – a clandestine group dedicated to bringing justice to those beyond the law.

However, as the Studio’s fight intensifies against exploitation, violence and corporate greed, can its ends continue to justify its means?

MTG Head of Programming, Jakob Mejlhede, said: “This is one of MTG’s most ambitious originals so far. Cold Courage is a complex and multilayered universe brought to life by an incredible line-up of international talent, and is set to be one of 2019’s hottest dramas.”
