Sofia Helin to star in series two of Mystery Road

We always like to keep an eye on what Sofia Helin is up to after her stint on The Bridge.

She’s co-starring (and producing) Swedish law series Honor, and has wrapped up on period drama Atlantic Crossing, but news reaches us that she’ll soon return to the crime genre by co-starring in series two of Aussie series, Mystery Road. reports that Helin will appear alongside side lead Aaron Pederson in series two as archaeologist Professor Sondra Elmquist.

The professor is conducting a dig near a remote coastal town when she encounters Pedersen’s Detective Jay Swan, who has moved to the town to be closer to his family and is investigating a grisly case.

A series spokesperson said: “I loved The Bridge and it made sense to have a European archaeologist. Sofia really responded to the scripts. We have a great cast and a great crew.”

The series has already begun filming in Australia.

Series one of Mystery Road (pictured) was shown in the UK on BBC Four. Let’s hope series two comes back onto the same channel.

More news as we get it.

    Series two was meant to start filming in February but there was no news for a long time. At least they are well under way now and the series will be broadcast in Australia next year. With Helin joining the cast, my excitement just shot through the roof. Can’t wait!
