Søren Sveistrup’s novel The Chestnut Man (Kastanjemanden) is coming to Netflix this autumn and now the streaming giant has released the first trailer for the highly-anticipated series.
The Chestnut Man takes place in a quiet suburb of Copenhagen, where the police make a terrible discovery on a stormy October morning. A young woman is found brutally murdered in a playground and one of her hands is missing. Above her hangs a small man of chestnuts.
Ambitious, young detective Naia Thulin (Danica Curcic) and her new partner, Mark Hess (Mikkel Boe Følsgaard) are assigned to the case and before long, they find a piece of mysterious evidence on the ‘chestnut man’ – evidence linking it all to a girl who disappeared a year earlier and was presumed dead: the daughter of Social Affairs Minister Rosa Hartung (Iben Dorner).
Look out for the six-part series later in the year.
