The second season of MODUS will air on BBC Four

The second season of the Swedish crime series Modus will premiere on BBC Four on the 10th of February.

The series is about psychologist and profiler Inger Johanne Vik (Melinda Kinnaman). In season one, she finds herself and her autistic daughter drawn into the investigation of a number of disturbing deaths, through which she meets detective Ingvar Nyman (Henrik Norlén) of ‘Rikskrim’, a Swedish national police force. Nyman is dispatched to Uppsala to investigate the shocking Christmas Eve murder of bishop Elisabeth Lindgren. In Stockholm, the bodies keep turning up – though the causes of death vary. But before long, Inger Johanne starts noticing a pattern.

Season two becomes much more global. The action is based on a state visit; US President Helen Tyler (played by Sex and the City‘s Kim Cattrall) visits Stockholm and she disappears without a trace. While there is a power struggle among the authorities, Ingvar and Inger Johanne get involved in the search. Addittionally, Warren Shifford (Greg Wise), Inger Johannes’s former mentor from the FBI and the President’s closest ally, is also in Stockholm.
