Season One of the wildly popular Finnish crime thriller TV series Bordertown arrives this week!

In the first season of the show from 2016, Chief investigator Kari Sorjonen and his family move to a small town to enjoy a more peaceful life. But it seems that the idyllic existence they had hoped for is far from the reality of this bordertown nestled between Finland and Russia. As the new police chief, Sorjonen has to use his brilliant mind and exceptional deductive skills to investigate several murder cases along with a serial killer who is tormenting the community. But he will soon discover that these successive crimes are connected not only to each other, but also to his family.

Created by Miikko Oikkonen, the third season of the show was recently broadcast, with a fourth on the way. Season Two, meanwhile, is on the way from Kino Lorber. It’s due on Feb. 16.
