Thirteen years earlier, he and his sister went missing, presumed victims of the notorious serial killer Jurek Walter (Hardy). To find the sister, police detective Saga Bauer (Beetz) must go undercover in the maximum-security psychiatric hospital where Walter has been kept since his arrest years ago.”

Norwegian film director Øystein Karlsen is set to write, executive produce and direct the series.

Zazie also has a new HBO Max series in the works.
