Audiences have long had a fascination with Scandinavian crime and whether it’s the hard-edge thrills of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo or the intellectual detective fiction of Wallander, Scandinavian crime is a genre that fans can’t quite get enough of. And The Sommerdahl Murders is another great entry in the genre that crime and mystery fans will surely salivate over.

Check out the all-new trailer for The Sommerdahl Murders below:

Detective Chief Inspector Dan Sommerdahl (Peter Mygind, Flame & Citron, Last Christmas) investigates murders in a lovely Danish coastal town with his best friend, Detective Flemming Torp (André Babikian, Unchangeable, The Protectors), and his wife, Marianne (Laura Drasbæk, Pusher, Lost Generation, No Time for Love), a criminal technician. But Dan’s years of devotion to the job have hurt his marriage, and with Marianne wanting a divorce, Dan discovers his rival for her affections is none other than his best friend. And they all must still work together to solve crimes.
