The Chestnut Man
The Chestnut Man is a character-driven psychological thriller. It takes the viewer on a dark and unpredictable hunt for a killer who leaves chestnut figurines as a creepy calling card on the victims, and suddenly is one case linked to a high-profile missing-child investigation.
The Chestnut Man is set in a quiet suburb of Copenhagen, where the police make a terrible discovery one blustery October morning. A young woman is found brutally murdered in a playground and one of her hands is missing. Above her hangs a small man made of chestnuts. The ambitious young detective Naia Thulin is assigned to the case, along with her new partner, Mark Hess. They soon discover a mysterious piece of evidence on the chestnut man - evidence connecting it to a girl who went missing a year earlier and was presumed dead - the daughter of politician (DK: Socialminister) Rosa Hartung.
The Danish psychological thriller has its roots in the Nordic noir genre and is based on the acclaimed novel The Chestnut Man by Søren Sveistrup.
