Based on an original idea by Elsebeth Egholm, the first season originally aired on TV2 Denmark in 2011 as five two-part stories and concluded with the feature film Shadow Of The Past (Fortidens skygge). However, season two will be a single continuous crime story across eight episodes that delve into the darkest of human minds.
The series follows a detective (Kenneth M. Christensen) and psychologist (Natalie Madueño) as they try to decipher and understand small yet crucial details in the hunt for a serial killer. However, the perpetrator’s mind and actions become increasingly desperate as the net closes in.
Head of Viaplay Originals, Nanna Mailand-Mercado, said: “It’s a series that captivates viewers with numerous psychological layers, but differs from many other crime dramas in that it is a whydunnit and not a classic whodunnit, with the killer’s identity revealed early on to the viewer.”
