THOSE WHO KILL

DEN SOM DRÆBER

Those Who Kill is a crime series about a violent criminal surrounded by fear and mystique – the serial killer. It takes a special kind of person to catch a serial killer; someone who knows and understands the killer’s dark side, and the fantasies that plague him – someone like the two lead characters, Deputy Chief Inspector Katrine Ries Jensen and forensic psychiatrist Thomas Schaeffer – a police detective and a “profiler”, who in very different ways each possess a deep psychological understanding that connects them to the killer’s victims and to the killer himself, driving them to pursue each case to the end of the line, again and again.
