An addictively intriguing crime thriller about complex relationships and small town prejudices. After a ten-year absence, Detective Lauri Räihä is sent to investigate the murders of two men in the small northern town where he grew up. Lauri seeks answers to the case only to discover other truths about himself, his home town, and whether one has the power to forgive all sins.

The jury, consisting of Christina Jeurling Birro, Laura Birn, Justin Judd and Alexander Karim, states:
"The jury had a difficult time deciding between six very different shows that all showed creative ambition and a desire to move Nordic drama forward.
In the end we decided to give the award to the show that in our opinion took the most risks in storytelling and originality in character development.
The winning series showed us a community under pressure and found new ways to deconstruct and play with the crime genre.
The 2019 Nordisk Film & TV Fond Prize goes to ALL THE SINS"
