BBC Four has acquired its first Finnish language drama series, Man In Room 301.
The six-part psychological thriller is written by British writer Kate Ashfield (Shaun Of The Dead) and directed by Mikko Kuparinen.
Man In Room 301 follows the Kurtti family, whose lives are irretrievably altered when their two-year-old son Tommi is killed by a gunshot.
Twelve years later, while on a holiday in Greece, the family come across a man who looks unnervingly like the boy’s killer.
Gripping and tense throughout, Man In Room 301 explores themes of guilt, retribution, justice and forgiveness.
Sue Deeks, Head of Programme Acquisition, BBC, said: “We are delighted that Man In Room 301 is our very first series from Finland. It is a tense psychological drama set between Finland and Greece that will keep BBC viewers intrigued and engrossed to the very end.”
The series is produced by Warner Bros. Finland, Wall to Wall (UK) and Inkas Films (Greece).
