Nordic Drama Queens Producing Blind Spot for Prime Video


Prime Video in the Nordics has commissioned Blind Spot, an adaptation of Anne Holt’s 1222 novel, from Nordic Drama Queens.

In the four-part mystery, a train collides with an avalanche during a heavy snowstorm and its passengers must take shelter in an old, isolated hotel in the mountains nearby. When several of them are murdered, officer Hanne Wilhelmsen begins to investigate, despite being temporarily suspended from the police.

Blind Spot is being produced by Nordic Drama Queens in co-production with Amazon MGM Studios and in association with Fifth Season. The script is written by Sara Heldt (Sandhamn Murders, The Death of a Pilgrim), together with Erik Skjoldberg (Occupied, Narvik). Skjoldberg is also directing all four episodes of the series.

Ida Engvoll (Love and Anarchy) is starring in the lead role as detective Hanne Wilhemsen, and she ism owned by cast members Pål Sverre Hagen (Exit, Kon-Tiki), Kjell Bergqvist (Bäckström, 30 Degrees in February) and Sissela Kyle (Fröken Frimans krig).

Blind Spot is set to premiere exclusively on Prime Video in the Nordics in early 2025. Fifth Season is handling global distribution of the series outside of the Nordics.

“I have been longing to see Hanne Wilhelmsen on screen for years,” said Sandra Harms, producer and co-founder of Nordic Drama Queens. “She is an extremely unique character, as her wittiness is combined with a sharp mind and extraordinary ability to read people—but she’s not always aware of how her own behavior is perceived by others. In Blind Spot, we will surround her with a great array of supporting characters, alongside a unique location, to create a modern, thrilling and entertaining murder mystery.”
