New Nordic television series to air in the UK


We all know the Brits love Nordic Noir. Hey, you may be a Brit! If so, good for you! Who doesn’t love settling down for some mystery, suspense, and Scandinavica? After all, it was the Brits who made series like The Killing and Borgen the huge successes they are today.

It has recently been announced that a new series, titled Jordskott, will be heading to the UK, thanks to ITV Encore who scored the rights to the series. The Swedish thriller will have ten episodes, and “follows police investigator Eva Thörnblad, played by Tommy’s Moa Gammel, as she hunts for a missing child in the deep forrest town of Jordskott. In the desolate Swedish province, the female investigator becomes fixated with the disappearance of a local boy, which comes seven years after the disappearance of her own daughter. Eva finds herself going over the series of events and is determined to connect the mysterious dots.” (Nordic Noir TV)

Jordskott is produced by Palladium Fiction and aired on CVT in its native Sweden last month to critical success and 1.6million viewers. Jayne Redpath of ITV Studio Global Entertainment stated: Jordskott’s stunning backdrop in a Swedish forest brilliantly sets the scene for this mysterious thriller of loss, grief and love.’(Nordic Noir TV)
