Bordertown is an original prime time series of 12 x 1h set in a bordertown between Finland and Russia. This Scandinavian crime fiction combines family drama with police procedural in a uniquely exotic setting.
Detective inspector Kari Sorjonen is one of the most respected officers at the National Bureau of Investigation in Finland. When his wife barely survives brain cancer, Sorjonen decides to take his family to an idyllic small town near the border of Russia, to live a quiet peaceful life.
Sorjonen joins the local Police Department just to face small town attitudes, political shenanigans and unconventional brand of frontier crimes – and finds them much harder to handle than illegal activities in the big city. How can you fight crime in place where everyone is connected in one way or the other?
Despite trying to withdraw himself from action Sorjonen’s brilliant mind can’t help but uncover secrets and start solving them. And sooner or later one of those secrets is bound to come knocking on the door.
