JORDSKOTT is now available for streaming in South Africa

The Swedish supernatural crime series Jordskott is now available for streaming in South Africa.

The series is available on the streaming service Showmax.

Jordskott follows detective Eva Thörnblad as she returns to her hometown to investigate the disappearance of her daughter, which occurred seven years ago. When he arrives home, she learns that more children are vanishing.

”Despite having next to no violent crime compared to South Africa, the Nordic countries have consistently told some of the best crime stories of the last decade, from The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (also on Showmax) to The Killing and The Bridge,” says Candice Fangueiro, head of content: Africa at Showmax.

“We’re delighted to introduce South African streaming audiences to the genre and confident that local audiences will relate to the show’s themes of corporate greed, environmentalism and the question of how far you’re prepared to go to protect those you love.”
