Bullets FINLAND Continue streaming season 1 New episodes on Thursdays
It may be impossible to escape a past of violence. Female suicide bomber recruiter Madina Taburova is trying to end her career on a less grisly note. Mari Saari, a Finnish undercover cop, is tasked with befriending Taburova, and their strange relationship undermines both women’s commitments to their causes. For Mari, the connection, even a fraught tenuous one, proves to be intoxicating: as a cop who takes on each job with a new identity, she’s never had the chance to build relationships and the strange intimacy of her arrangement with Madina makes her vulnerable. Meanwhile, is Madina really trying to escape her bloody past, or is everything in service of a hidden agenda? This series was produced by the team behind The Bridge, The Killing, and the Millennium trilogy, so you know it’s going to bring the intensity. Get caught up in the obsession and dive into the psyche of two women unlike any the Nordic Noir genre has ever known.
