Freezing Embrace

The chief inspector Antti Hautalehto has hired a young policeman, whose father has worked with him for more than 20 years. Hautalehto finds himself between a rock and hard place, when it turns out that the new policeman has serious mental problems, which he has managed to hide in all tests. At the same time mysterious murders start to take place. Almost every week a young man is found drowned into the river. Eventually Hautalehto admits that the new policeman is inevitably guilty for the murders. He is arrested and the killings come to an end.
Only the policeman’s father still believes in his son’s innocence. The chief inspector gives him a chance to prove his claims. Finally, Hautalehto can’t take the policeman’s guilt for granted. To find out the truth Hautalehto has to bring to light a traumatic event from their past and relieve the false memories that father had planted into son’s mind. Only this leads Hautalehto to the tracks of the real killer.

Freezing Embrace is based on Christian Rönnbacka’s bestselling novel series. The story takes place in peaceful Porvoo, where the idyllic river flows through the town. Director of the series, Petri Kotwica was nominated for a Golden Bear at Berlin International Film Festival 2008 for his feature film Black Ice.
