The Sommerdahl Murders

The shooting of the German-Danish co-production “The Sommerdahl Murders”, a new tv-series loosely based on Anna Grue’s bestselling novels “Dan Sommerdahl”, was in summer 2019  in Helsingør, Denmark. The first four episodes will have a length of 90 minutes each.
Detective Dan Sommerdahl works alongside his wife Marianne and his best friend Flemming, whom he has both known ever since school days, at the police station of his hometown Helsingør. While Dan and Flemming investigate amid the small town on the coast of Denmark, they are accompanied by Marianne as chief of forensics – together they form an (almost) inseparable trio. But their relationship and cooperation quickly get complicated, when Marianne wants to separate from Dan in the beginning of the series.
As beautiful and seemingly peaceful Denmark’s coastline may be, there are murder cases that require intuition and expertise despite all personal issues…
