9/10

Year: 2019
Genre: TV/Thriller/Crime
Original titel: Den som dræber: Fanget af mørket 
Director: Carsten Myllerup
Source: Streaming (Viaplay)

PLOT:
17-year old Julie has been missing for six months without a trace and police investigator Jan is desperate to give her mother answers. When Jan finds the remains of a girl the similar age and suddenly another girl is kidnapped, he calls in profiler Louise to help understand the mind of the killer. Under the pressure to save the two kidnapped girls, Jan and Louise must predict the killers next move, while every decision they make escalates the manhunt which has severe consequences for the fate of the two girls. In order to save the girls, they must embark on a journey into the darkest and most extreme part of the human mind and face the consequences that arise. Jan and Louise constantly move around in the thrilling periphery of the murderer’s view, but as the case progresses the murderer’s mind and actions become more and more desperate, and it becomes unclear if there is only one killer out there. 

OPINION:
I usually love every TV show or movie I see that comes out of Denmark and this was no undantag. But I have to admit, I almost quit in one of the earlier episodes. since I’m not a fan of when they show the ”bad guy” early on, I prefer when that part is a mystery, so about halfway through I almost quit because of it. I choosed to hang in there and boy did it pay off. Really intense and some awesome twists and turns.

WARNING – SPOILER:
Signe Egholm Olsen as Stine Velin makes the best performance I have ever seen as a psycopath. Her facial expressions, the way she moves, how she talks. It’s just unbelievable. I’m so glad I didn’t quit.

SOME BACKGROUND:
The show is Danish and filmed in Denmark. You can call this a reboot since the first season came out in 2011, and now we have completly new actors as the main character.

STREAM:
I watched this streaming on Viaplay, but I really, really hope it will come out on Blu-Ray, or atleast DVD.
