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 in October 2016.

Season 3 of crime drama Bordertown is the final chapter in the popular, much-loved saga. Whereas in season 1, the Sorjonen family moved to eastern Finland in the hope of a new beginning, and season 2 conjured up ghosts from the main characters’ past, season 3 puts forward the question whether all of us can be pushed over the line that makes us capable of evil.

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 third season includes 10 new episodes and 5 new crimes.
