Modus (TV4 2015, Melinda Kinnaman, Henrik Norlén)


Brutal Swedish crime thriller Modus is based on the novels by Anne Holt. Melinda Kinnaman plays Inger Johanne Vik a criminal psychologist who returns home to Sweden after working for the FBI. She initially has plans to retire to the academic world but when her autistic daughter witnesses a murder.

Inger then joins forces with cop Ingvar to track down the killer.

The series premiered in the UK on BBC Four on 26 November 2016. Alison Graham reviewing the first episode for the Radio Times said “If you’re prepared to sigh wearily at the inevitability of female slaughter – and very little is left to the imagination – then it’s a brisk thriller, packed with names from The Bridge, Thicker than Water and Wallander (Krister Henriksson, also recently in The Fall).”
