It’s been a bit of a day for fans of so-called Nordic Noir. First we reported that Kim Cattrall was to join the cast of series two of Modus (story here) and then the acquisition by Netflix of Finnish series Bordertown (see that story here). But the news continues… one of the more anticipated series of the spring is Swedish/French series, Midnight Sun, set up in the Sami wilderness of (very) northern Sweden. We’ve known for a while that Sky Atlantic has picked the show up for UK broadcast, and now we know when we can watch it.
First, the story: Kahina Zadi, (Leïla Bekhti) a French police officer, as she heads to a small mining community in remote northern Sweden to lead an investigation into the murder of a French citizen. With DA Anders Harnesk (Gustaf Hammarsten) to assist her with the local customs, the pair soon discovers the murder is just the tip of the iceberg.

All eight episodes will be available at once with Sky Box Sets.
