SBS on Demand: DNA

European crime drama DNA begins at SBS on Demand tomorrow.

In French and Danish with English subtitles, this premiered internationally in September.

All eight episodes available to stream.

Rolf Larsen (Anders W. Berthelsen) is an investigator at Vestegnens Police department in Copenhagen. He is married to Maria (Johanne Louise Schmidt), who is returning to work as a stewardess, after giving birth to their daughter Andrea. But just as Rolf is looking forward to a few days alone with his daughter, work calls: A little girl, Minna, has been kidnapped from a kindergarten in Br√łndby. The search is distributed across Europe, and when Rolf receives a hint from Poland, he decides to travel down and talk to the witness, who claims to have seen Minna. But a storm is raging, and it soon changes his life. On the boat, Rolf struggles with seasickness and briefly parks the stroller while going to the bathroom. When he comes back, his daughter is gone. Did she fall overboard or was she kidnapped?

Five years later we meet Rolf, who is divorced after the loss of his daughter and now works as a local police officer in Northern Jutland. He is introduced to the young police assistant Neel (Olivia Joof Lewerissa), who by coincidence, uncovers a flaw the Danish DNA registration system. The error goes back several years and includes hundreds of cases, including the Minna case. The case is reopened, and joined by the experienced French investigator, Claire Bobain, Rolf returns to Poland to find out what happened five years ago. But Rolf has a hidden agenda – the hope of finally finding out what happened to his own daughter.
