Nordic Noir : Netflix acquires Bordertown movie, The Mural Murders

Recently, we brought you news that Bordertown (Sorjonen) – the brilliant Finnish series – would be returning for a feature-length film.

Now we’re hearing that streaming giant Netflix has picked it up for broadcast outside of Finland.

The film, which will be subtitled, The Mural Murders is to start filming in October.

According to Variety: “The movie brings back Bordertown’s key cast, Ville Virtanen, Anu Sinisalo and Sampo Sarkola. The screenplay is written by Miikko Oikkonen and Antti Pesonen, and Juuso Syrjä will direct.

“The plot of the movie follows brilliant police investigator Kari Sorjonen chasing his arch-enemy Lasse Maasalo. The movie is set against the backdrop of a social media voting contest in which people have voted on without whom the country would be better off. When three of the most-voted people disappear, Sorjonen is asked to come back to work to investigate the hate crimes.”

More news as we get it, but look out for it next year.
