Viaplay Sets Premiere For Those Who Kill Reboot

Season two of Those Who Kill (Den som dræber) premieres on Viaplay in February with a fresh take that includes a brand new cast and narrative structure, directed by Carsten Myllerup (Aber Bergen).

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.”

Those Who Kill season two is written by Ina Bruhn (Norskov), Per Daumiller (Below the Surface) and Tine Krull Petersen (Dicte). It premieres 27th February 2019 on Viaplay.
