The series tells the story of DI Kari Sorjonen of the Serious Crime Unit in Lappeenranta, his family, and his investigations into a variety of harrowing homicides around the border area. The first season of the series premiered on YLE’s streaming service Kotikatsomo in October 2016.

In Bordertown season 2, no one will be able to escape their past. The five crimes of the season are called Five Finger Exercise, The Rite of Spring, Cat’s Cradle, Bloodmaid and Without a Shadow. Each of these murder cases takes the viewer on a journey into humanity’s dark secrets in the midst of a small town’s summer idyll on the shores of Lake Saimaa.


BORDERTOWN is the first Finnish Nordic noir series. The highly acclaimed first season has premiered in 180 countries already… and counting. The first season won the Venla Award (Finnish Emmy) for the best drama series and the first episode gained over one million viewers in Finland. Approximately every fourth citizen has seen the series in its home territory. The anticipated second season includes 10 new episodes and 5 new crimes.
