Netflix’s ‘The Chestnut Man’ brings new flair to Nordic noir

Netflix has released the first teaser trailer for the upcoming series, ‘The Chestnut Man.’ The show is an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Søren Sveistrup, also the creator of the hit thriller, ‘The Killing.’

The story follows the investigation that takes place after a young woman’s body, missing a hand, is found in a playground of a quiet suburb in Copenhagen.

A chestnut doll lies next to her as the killer’s calling card. An aspiring young detective, Naia Thulin, (Danica Curcic, previously seen in Netflix’s Equinox) and her new partner on the case, Mark Hess (Mikkel Boe Følsgaard, also starred in The Rain) strive to find this chestnut man terrorising Copenhagen.

Our mismatched investigators soon find a piece of surprising evidence on the grisly killer and connect them to the case of a missing girl, Rosa Hartung, the daughter of a politician who was presumed dead a year ago.

The high praises for the book certainly set the bar high for the series. The first look does seem promising with the sinister imagery and the eerily spooky children’s song.

This Scandinavian thriller, produced by SAM productions, is set to be released on Netflix this fall, although the exact dates are yet to be announced.
