If you like a good TV series like ‘The Killing,’ and you’re looking for a crime-thriller to start with, look no further! ‘The Chestnut Man,’ a psychological thriller about a serial killer seeking vengeance, has the macabre appeal of Nordic Noir. It goes without saying that the release of new thrillers is always a big deal among fans of the genre who enjoy delving into every detail of the series. The Danish series has six episodes and is available on Netflix.
The story is adapted from Soren Sveistrup’s novel, with the author and Dorte W Hogh serving as writers for the series, which appears to be perfectly calibrated for that demographic. The storyline is well-paced and quite engaging; you will want to watch the next episode right after. It is a majorly grim affair, a twisted story of missing arms, feet, and dead bodies, coupled with chestnut figurines.
