'Deadwind' Season 2 Preview: Double-homicide investigation haunts a troubled Karppi after another brutal murder
We're expecting a twisted crime thriller with this case and can't wait to see the Sakari and Sofia back on cases
Spoilers for 'Deadwind' Season 1
The Finnish drama 'Deadwind' originally titled 'Karppi' first aired in Finland on Yle TV2 with Season 1 on March 14, 2018, and on August 23, 2018, the series hit the major streamer Netflix. As international dramas continue to be huge hits on the streaming service, fans are set to enjoy the release of the 'Deadwind' Season 2 on July 1. Reeling after the death of her husband, detective Sofia Karppi (Pihla Viitala), has to get her hands dirty on an assigned murder case, bringing about a thrilling crime chronicled over the entire season.
The murder she has to solve? That of (Anna Bergdahl) Pamela Tola. In Season 1, with the help of her partner Sakari Nurmi (Lauri Tilkanen), Sofia deduced the person responsible for Anna's death was Usko Bergdahl (Jani Volanen), Anna's husband. Later, the detectives had found out that Anna had some shady dealings with her business partners, and Sofia eventually sets her sights on the real killer, Jarkko Vaahtera (Mikko Nousiainen). There are still loose ends that need to be figured out as Anna's cash dealings with her partners come to light. In Season 2, we speculate that Sofia and Sakari, will dive into another murder case, as is the point of the crime thriller and this time, it is reported to be a double murder. Sofia's plans for a relaxing winter holiday is abruptly halted as two corpses surface on construction sites under the Gulf of Finland - one site is located in Helsinki and the other is located in Tallinn. The murders seem to have a connection with the mayor of Helsinki, Sara Tulisuo (Leena Pöysti) who has been charged with corruption. Sofia and Sakari go on to investigate the killer happenings in the drug homicides, but then, another dead body surfaces.
Just like Season 1, we're expecting a twisted crime thriller with this case as well and can't wait to see the Sakari and Sofia back on cases. This Finnish drama has gained an impressive audience and Season 2 is highly anticipated.
The official synopsis as provided by Yle for Season 2 reads: "Criminal investigator Sofia Karppi’s (Pihla Viitala) winter holiday will be canceled when two bodies are found on the construction sites of the tunnel planned under the Gulf of Finland, one in Helsinki and the other in Tallinn. The murders concern Sara Tulisuoto (Leena Pöysti), the mayor of Helsinki driving the tunnel, who is also wrestling with corruption charges. Karppi and her co-worker Sakari Nurmi (Lauri Tilkanen) set out to investigate drug-related homicides until a new brutal murder takes place, which upset Karppi to the core."
