From Hans Rosenfeldt, writer of the global hit The Bridge, comes Marcella—a dark and complex thriller set on the streets of London. Detective Sergeant Marcella Backland is confronted by the sudden return of a killer from her past whilst battling the fear that she herself might be responsible for the murders.

Produced by Tony Wood’s Buccaneer Media and co-created by Hans Rosenfeldt and Nicola Larder (The Tunnel), Marcella is Rosenfeldt’s first series created for an English-speaking audience.
