Starz has acquired U.S. premium pay-TV rights to Norwegian mystery drama thriller Monster, Deadline reports.
“In the dark and remote landscape of northern Norway, a brutal murder reveals a mass grave which links old cases to missing people. Local policewoman Hedda (Ingvild Holthe Bygdnes) is put on the case with special investigator Joel Dreyer (Lilyhamer and The Bridge‘s Jakob Oftebro) who comes from the metropolitan south. Their different backgrounds, personalities and methods immediately set them against each other. But when the investigation begins to spiral out of control, both detectives resort to questionable moves in order to stay on the case and protect their secrets.”
Created by headwriter Hans Christian Storrøsten and director Anne Sewitsky, it’s produced by NRK Drama. The seven-episode serial killer series has also just won the 2017 European Script Award for Most Innovative Script of the Year by a newcomer.
Monster begins airing in Scandinavia next month.
