See the latest Scandinavian noir first on the big screen.
A French police officer, Kahina Zadi (Leïla Bekhti), travels to Kiruna, a small mining community in remote northern Sweden, to investigate the brutal murder of a French citizen. However, this is just the tip of the iceberg – the initial murder sets off a string of new killings, and Kahina enlists the help of a Swedish Prosecutor, Anders Harnesk (Gustaf Hammarsten) to solve the crimes.
They come to realise that behind the killings is a 10-year-old secret conspiracy involving many of the town’s inhabitants. Kahina finds herself confronting a ruthless serial killer – always one step ahead – a macabre plan, and her own painful past.
