The series takes place in today’s Malmö in a fictional setting and tells the story of six characters that work as police officers. We follow their daily activities, both at work and in their private lives, in the real multicultural city that Malmö has become with many immigrants.
Director Sanna Lenken’s Words ”My hope is that Thin Blue Line” will be a moving, warm and exciting series with high authenticity. For me this is a series about people that constantly get involved in extreme situations and how they are able to handle them (or are not able to handle them) emotionally. It has to do with both our society and the individual person. It is a series where it will be easy to feel love and understanding for the characters whether or not what they do is right or wrong. When I last read the script what struck me is how many layers there are in our society and how they are shown through what our characters go through. What is the society’s responsibility for and where lies your loyalty as an individual. Thin Blue Line lifts up questions that concern us every day. There are many questions in the series that do not have simple answers and that engage people. It is a series with temperament and warmth and will not shine away lightness or darkness. Serious subjects are combined with humor which, is needed in order for the public to stay interested and entertained.”
How can a person be whole if on a daily basis one is exposed to pain, violence and hate? This season we will meet again Sara, Magnus, Jesse, Leah, Dani and Faye, all of whom have chosen to be police officers. They fight to somehow get their tough work lives to go together with their private lives. Their workplace is the streets of Malmö, a city with many sides to it. In this season they will be a part of things that will shake them to their cores and force them into deep soul-searching. There will be events that will put stress on their private relationships and force them to re-evaluate their values and choices. With new characters and conflicts season two will introduce even more difficult questions than season one without trying to give any answers.

He sets off on a violent hunt for the real robbers. 30 million Kroner have been stolen from a cash repository in Sandefjord and several people were killed in the process. Olle is on his own, trying to find the people who are framing him. His only chance is to clear his name before the police catch up to him – but why has he been targeted?
Olle is forced to leave everything he holds dear behind in his quest for the truth behind what is happening to him, desperate to hide his true identity – and what made him run away many years ago. Who is Olle Hultén? What is he hiding? And is he guilty of what he is being accused of?
