BBC Crime Thriller 'DNA' Is Coming
DNA, a Danish detective show set in Copenhagen, is set to launch this year and it sounds seriously gripping.
Starring Oscar-nominated actress Charlotte Rampling (Broadchurch), Zofia Wichlacz (1983), Anders W. Berthelsen (The Killing), Nicolas Bro (The Bridge) and Olivia Joof (Perfect Places), the series is by Torleif Hoppe, the co-creator of crime drama The Killing.
The eight-part series follows Rolf Larsen (Berthelsen), a respected detective on the Copenhagen police force, who has his life tragically upended when his baby daughter goes missing.
Five years on from the devastating ordeal, a new lead emerges at the same time a huge flaw in the Danish police's DNA database system is uncovered.
Realising his daughter could still be alive, Rolf desperately tries to seek answers. He begins investigating a parallel case with the help of Claire Bobin (Rampling), the French investigator working on it, and the pair are lead to an international child-trafficking ring.
Sue Deeks, Head of Programme Acquisition at the BBC, says: "Beginning with a shocking event, DNA is an intriguing and unexpected crime series which will keep BBC viewers absorbed to the very end."
While there's no official release date for DNA yet, the BBC say it's coming some time later this year.
Anyone else bored of watching reruns and dying for new crime drama RN? This couldn't come any sooner...
Until then, you might want to catch up on ITV's Van Der Valk, which was released on the channel last month.
The three-part detective drama series follows Simon van der Valk, a cynical yet intuitive Dutch detective - and it looks equally as good.
