Set in Stockholm, St Petersburg and Helsinki, The Underworld Trilogy tells three stories about drug trafficking and money laundering from three perspectives: the cop, the lawyer and the prisoner. Each story is an uncompromising and thought-provoking thriller in its own right and can be screened as an independent mini-series. Together, the three stories provide a true-to-life picture of the global drug-trafficking scene between East and West, and the money laundering that is associated with this brutal trade.

Each story is an uncompromising and thought-provoking thriller and, at the same time, an independent miniseries. Together they provide a very bold and insightful view of the global drug-trafficking scene between the east and the west and the money laundering that is associated with it.
The series’ cast includes top actors from Finland, Sweden, Russia and Estonia.

Prisoner: Computer whizz-kid VESA LEVOLA is a decent young man with a promising career who unexpectedly ends up in prison after becoming involved in a street fight. In prison Vesa ends up working for the kingpin of the criminal world, who runs a drug-trafficking organization from behind bars.

Cop: The police officer PEKKA MANNINEN goes undercover into a Russian drug gang. Treading the fine line between the legal and the illegal, Manninen begins to confuse the roles of police officer and criminal, until he goes too far and there’s no turning back.

Lawyer: TOMAS MATTILA is a scruffy, beer-guzzling attorney whose life is a total mess. Through a coincidence, however, he gains a new client, who offers him a lucrative job. Mattila sobers up and begins to enjoy his newfound success, until he finds out that he is helping Swedish white-collar criminals launder money. Mattila realizes too late that there is no way out.
