About the Show:
As Sweden is paralyzed by a heavy snowstorm the night before Christmas Eve, five-week-old baby Lucas mysteriously disappears from his home in a suburb of Stockholm. The boy’s parents search desperately for an explanation, but Lucas’ mother, Jenni, who was under the influence of strong sleeping pills, can’t remember what happened the night before.
When news of the disappearance reaches Alice, a seasoned police investigator, she suspects a crime has been committed. The revelation that a paediatric nurse filed a complaint about Jenni with Social Services only heightens suspicions about the family. A massive police investigation is launched and Alice becomes deeply engrossed in the case, determined to uncover the truth and find Lucas before it is too late.
The first episode will launch on Channel 4 on Sunday 13 March at 11pm, while the entire box set will be available on Walter Presents via All 4 from Friday 11 March.
