Deadwind – 2021

There’s no escaping duty - 28 x 45'


Sofia Karppi, a detective in her 30’s, struggles to take care of her two daughters after her husband’s death, while investigating on brutal murders with her partner Sakari Nurmi. In each season, a new case linked to high spheres of power and secretive businesses puts her at risk and forces her to choose between her personal life and her duty as a cop.

In season 3, she is called back from her forced sabbatical leave to investigate on what soon appears to be a serial killer case in the pharmaceutical industry. At the same time, questions about her husband’s death start to resurface…
