NENT Group’s Those Who Kill Set for New Season


Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group) has commissioned a new season of its hit original Danish crime drama Those Who Kill.

The previous season is one of the most-viewed original series on NENT Group’s Viaplay streaming service in 2019. The new season of Those Who Kill will be produced by Miso Film and premiere exclusively on Viaplay across the Nordic region in early 2021.

In the series, psychological profiler Louise Bergstein (Natalie Madueño; Follow the Money, The Rain) is contacted by Alice, a terminally ill family friend desperate to find the murderer of her 18-year-old son, one of three young men killed in Denmark in recent months. Louise soon uncovers a pattern in the horrifying events, but not her personal connection to the killer, who is more intelligent and manipulative than she could ever have imagined.

Filippa Wallestam, NENT Group’s chief content officer, said: “It’s almost impossible to look away when watching Those Who Kill—even if you sometimes want to. This unsettling but thrilling series has raised the bar for Nordic crime drama with production values, scripting and performances of the highest class. It has topped the Viaplay charts and been sold to major international broadcasters. I can’t wait to see the next chapter of this compelling series, which plumbs the darkest depths of the human psyche while taking the genre to a whole new level.”
