5:45 min

Björn Stein, one of the directors behind The Bridge, spoke to Radio Sweden about what makes the Arctic mining town of Kiruna the perfect location for his latest Nordic Noir crime drama.

Stein and Måns Mårlind make up the directing duo behind the popular Swedish-Danish TV series The Bridge. 

Now they are returning to TV screens with a new series called Midnight Sun. Set in Kiruna, the northernmost town in Sweden, the programme revolves around a Swedish prosecutor with Sami heritage, and a French police officer who comes to investigate the gruesome murder of a French citizen.

"It's mindblowing. And it's a harsh environment. It's tough, you know."

Stein told Radio Sweden about his working relationship with Mårlind, Sami mysticism, and about what it is that makes Kiruna the perfect location for their latest production.
