SBS on Demand: Pagan Peak
Germany's answer to The Bridge will screen from Thursday.
German thriller Pagan Peak will premiere this week at SBS on Demand.
The 8 part series centres is inspired by The Bridge and centres around a dead body found near the German – Austrian border.
All 8 episodes will be available, in German with English subtitles.
The series premiered at the Tribeca TV Festival and began broadcasting internationally in January.
When a gruesomely staged body is found, propped up on a mountain pass in the Alps close to the German-Austrian border, two detectives are sent to investigate.
For German detective Ellie, this is the first real challenge of her career, and her Austrian counterpart Gedeon seems to have lost any ambitions in his job. Soon they discover more crime scenes with symbolically posed victims, reminiscent of pagan rituals.
It all seems to be part of a bigger, sinister plan. Ellie finds herself under increasing pressure to understand the deranged killer’s motives so she can stop him. The hunt leads them ever deeper in the dark valleys and archaic Alpine customs – and the paranoid world of the killer.
