Swedish crime series to screen in Norway

The Swedish crime series Modus is set to screen on Norway’s TV2 on the 20th of December, the Nordisk Film & TV Fund reports. Modus takes place during a wintery Christmas period in Sweden, and follows psychologist Inger Johanne Vik who finds herself and her autistic daughter drawn into the investigation by a number of disturbing deaths. The series currently has no English-subtitled release planned, but it could be possible considering the series had almost 1.1 million viewers per episode and season 2 is on the way.

The series is produced by Miso Film, who is also behind 1864 and the Varg Veum series. Another series of theirs, Acquitted, has just had its second season greenlit by TV2, with filming to commence in February 2016.

A UK date for Modus will be announced soon
