Award-winning Swedish thriller THE LAWYER (Advokaten), starring Malin Buska, will premiere on Channel 4 on Sunday, June 23 at 11pm.
The series follows Frank Nordling, a young and exceptionally promising defence lawyer, whose whole world unravels when he learns the truth behind his adoptive parents’ death.
As children, Frank and his sister Sara (Malin Buska) witnessed their parents die in a car bomb explosion. As adults, Sara, now a policewoman, is still obsessing over solving their parents’ murder while Frank is making every attempt to put the past behind him. When Sara finally forces him into her investigation, they are shocked to find out their parents were killed by one of the leaders in Copenhagen’s criminal underworld, Thomas Waldman.
To Frank’s horror, Waldman also happens to be one of the most prominent clients of his friend’s law firm. In order to avenge his parents’ death, Frank must infiltrate Waldman’s organisation to become his personal lawyer and trusted confidant. But is it worth the price when it hits too close to home?
