New Finnish series All The Sins coming in 2019

Finnish crime drama is picking up the pace. Last week we brought you news of series three of Bordertown, (here) and now we’re hearing of a new series that’s set to hot the TV festival circuit in competition.

All The Sins (Kaikki synnit) begins in classic Nordic Noir with a body winched upside down in a barn as a shadowy assassin draws a knife seemingly to dispatch the victim. But, diverging from the Nordic Noir playbook, we never see the corpse. After a 10-year absence, Detective Lauri Räiha (Johannes Holopainen) is dispatched to investigate the murders of two men, both pillars of the ultra-conservative Laestadian religious community, in Varjakka, a small northern Finnish town where he grew up. He is accompanied by a senior officer, Sanna Tervo (Maria Sid).

But why does Räiha have such huge anger-management issues, seething, white knuckles clenched, in a therapy class, after hitting his boyfriend? And why does Tervo feel compelled to sleep with the first man she meets, and the second? It is these character mysteries which, as much as the murders, which transforms “All the Sins” into compulsive viewing.

It has been produced for Finnish VOD service, Elisa Viihde.

Here’s  Finnish-language trailer:

    This is one of the series coming this year in Finland that I’m seriously waiting for (along with Arctic Circle), and now it seems the rest of the Nordic coutries are caught up with it as it won the 2019 Nordisk Film & TV Fond Prize
