What Is The Hunt for a Killer About?
In March 1989, the sadistic murder of Helén in Hörby, a small town in southern Sweden, traumatized the nation. A seemingly impossible case, it remained unsolved for 15 years, leaving the small community and the police force entrusted to protect it with a painful open wound. On the night Helén disappeared, there were about twenty suspected pedophiles living in Hörby. This is the prelude to The Hunt for a Killer, which follows the unwavering journey of the two detectives Åkesson and Olhed who led an investigation team that solved numerous homicides in southern Sweden and who would eventually, against all odds, find Helén's killer.
The Hunt for a Killer is a story about a region left behind, class inequalities and social exclusion, but it's also a story about a man of integrity who pushed back against the authorities, revolted against corruption and never gave up.
