THOSE WHO KILL is a crime series about a violent criminal who is surrounded by fear and mystique – the serial killer.
Someone who knows and understands the killer’s dark sides and the fantasies that plague him – someone like our two lead characters, Deputy Chief Inspector (DCI) Katrine Ries Jensen and forensic psychiatrist Thomas Schaeffer.
Each of them possesses a deep psychological understanding that connects them to the killer’s victims – and to the killer himself – driving them to pursue each case to the end of the line, again and again.
You need a very particular kind of person to catch the serial killer.
The series consists of 6 x 90-minute standalone films, structured dramatically so that they also can be shown as 2 x 45-minute TV episodes. The last film in the series, SHADOW OF THE PAST, was designed for theatrical release and premiered in Danish cinemas in late 2011.
