The Sommerdahl Murders (season 2)

After the outstanding success of the Danish premiere of season 1 of the series, the filming of 4 new films in German-Danish co-production started in early July 2020. The film will be shot again in Helsingør, Denmark, based on Anna Grue’s successful novel series “Dan Sommerdahl” (published by Piper Verlag). Season 1 will be broadcast on ZDF in autumn 2020.
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…
