Netflix has revealed the first full-length trailer (watch above) for its upcoming Danish series ‘The Chestnut Man.’ The Danish-language mystery and thriller series will premiere on September 29 on Netflix, worldwide.
The trailer shows the dark and gritty nature of the series. The police are looking for a suspect who has left chestnut miniatures near the crime scene. The Chestnut Man series has six episodes.
The character-driven psychological thriller series comes from the creator of The Killing, with its roots in the Nordic noir genre. It leads the viewer on a dark and mysterious hunt for a serial killer who leaves chestnut miniatures as a creepy calling card on the victims, and one case is unexpectedly related to a high-profile missing-child investigation.
The series stars Danica Curcic (The Mist, Equinox), Iben Dorner (Borgen), Lars Ranthe (Another Round), Mikkel Boe Følsgaard (A Royal Affair, Borgen), and David Dencik (Chernobyl, James Bond ‘No Time To Die’).
The cast also includes Esben Dalgaard, Morten Brovn, Marie-Lydie Melono Nokouda, Jens Jørgen Spottag, Camilla Lau, Peder Thomas Pedersen, and Anders Hove.
The Chestnut Man takes place in a quiet Copenhagen suburb, where the police make a horrible discovery on a chilly October morning. One of a young woman's hands is missing after she is brutally murdered at a playground. A small man, made of chestnuts lies next to her. Naia Thulin (Danica Curcic), an ambitious young detective, is assigned to the investigation, along with her new partner, Mark Hess (Mikkel Boe Flsgaard). They quickly discover a mysterious piece of evidence on the chestnut man that connects it to a girl who went missing a year ago and was assumed dead - the daughter of politician (DK: Socialminister) Rosa Hartung (Iben Dorner).
The Chestnut Man is based on the acclaimed debut novel of Sren Sveistrup of the same name, and it is created for the screen by Søren Sveistrup, Dorte Høgh, David Sandreuter & Mikkel Serup.
The series is directed by Kasper Barfoed and Mikkel Serup (The Killing, Pros, and Cons) and produced by SAM Productions, who is also behind the successful Norwegian Netflix original Ragnarok and the new season of the newly announced Borgen. Producers are Stine Meldgaard and Morten Kjems Hytten Juhl, executive producers are Søren Sveistrup and Meta Louise Foldager Sørensen.
