Finland’s hit series Deadwind is returning for season 2 on Netflix July 1. Deadwind takes place in the Helsinki police department and features detectives Sofia Karppi (Pihla Viitala), who lost her husband just before season 1, and Sakari Nurmi (Lauri Tilkanen), her rookie partner. As is typical of Nordic Noir, there was a political bent to the crime in season 1. We called it “nothing new but extremely watchable” in our Top 30 list (which is exclusive subscriber content). We will definitely check out season 2, which finds Karppi and Nurmi cutting their winter holidays short when two bodies are found in a controversial tunnel project sponsored by the possibly corrupt mayor of Helsinki. You can see the trailer here.
