Lakeside Murders | Koskinen



Crime series
10 x 42 min
2 Seasons

The series follows Inspector Sakari Koskinen and his team in the Violent Crimes Unit as they try to solve murders in a Finnish lakeside city of Tampere.

The Violent Crimes Unit is exceedingly busy and understaffed, not having enough resources.

The ragtag team includes a chronically tired mother of three, a self-proclaimed ladies’ man and a football enthusiast. During the first season, Koskinen and his team face a serial killer, a murder spree in the wake of an IT company’s bankruptcy, a jewellery robbery gone bad, a series of murders in a mental home and a drug gang related arson with homicides. As Koskinen faces violent and grisly crimes, he also has to struggle against inner demons to keep his own life in balance.
