Michael Nyqvist’s 100 CODE heading to the U.S.

The Swedish/American television series 100 Code has been picked up by the cable network WGN America, which is focusing on cost effective original scripted series.

100 Code stars Dominic Monaghan and the late Michael Nykvist. Set between New York and Stockholm, young, blonde and blue-eyed women have been turning up dead in fields of flowers. Though a special dispensation from the NYPD, Detective Tommy Conley (Monaghan) is permitted to observe and advise the Stockholm PD. Upon arrival in Sweden, he is paired with Mikael Eklund (Nyqvist) a by-the-book Swedish cop with an aversion to American culture. Both hate each other, but the two are quickly forced to resolve their differences as the mysterious killings continue. As the web of shocking murders continues, Conley and Eklund are led down a path of no return in their hunt for the vicious killer.

The series was developed by Academy Award-winner Bobby Moresco (Crash, Million Dollar Baby) and is produced by 100 Code AB & Zen Productions in association with Fabrik Entertainment, Red Arrow International and Strix Drama for Kanal 5 and Sky Deutschland. The series originally premiered in 2015 and has since been sold to over one hundred territories.

To be honest, it sounds amazing. Definitely a new bingeable series to add to the list!
