100 code – the story : New York – Stockholm
Over a period of 16 months, blonde, young women are found murdered. The location of the bodies is always in a field with Asphodeline and near water.
Because the New York Police Officer Thomas Conley (Dominic Monaghan) finds similarities between a series of murders in the US and a death in Sweden, he travels to Stockholm. Mikael Eklund (Michael Nyqvist) is assigned to the case in Stockholm – after having adopted it only under protest before leaving the police for a job at a security company. The two unequal cops meet with great suspicion and animosity , as they start the search for the girl killer.
A first track leads to the Greek myth the abduction of Persephone by Hades, the god of the underworld. Soon Conley and Eklund are on the heels of a first suspect, but they have no idea what danger lies behind the murders. Dark and exciting, as 100 code unfolds this complex story, it’s not just a mysterious, deadly network that the two very different investigators have to deal with, but they also struggle with their own demons. Eklund believes he hasn’t been a great father to his daughter, Hannah. Hannah’s mother recently passed away from cancer and her death takes a toll on her relationship with her father. She starts to develop a rebellious side, and wants to get her dad to notice her. Meanwhile Conley feels responsible for the death of his girlfriend.
