NORDIC NOIR BBC Four acquires new Finnish series Huone 301

BBC Four has acquired six-part Finnish drama Man In Room 301 (Huone 301), its first-ever series from Finland.

The drama is written by British actress and writer Kate Ashfield and directed by Mikko Kuparinen.

Man In Room 301 is “a psychological thriller that weaves between the past and present to tell the story of the Kurtti family, whose lives irrevocably hanged when two-year-old Tommi was killed by a gunshot. Whilst on their family holiday in Greece 12 years later, they come across a man that looks just like the boy’s alleged killer.”

BBC Head of Programme Acquisition, Sue Deeks, said: “We are delighted that Man In Room 301 is our very first series from Finland. It is a tense psychological drama set between Finland and Greece that will keep BBC viewers intrigued and engrossed to the very end.”

There’s no word on transmission date just yet. More news as we get it.
