TV show description:
From Ken Bruen and Bobby Moresco, the 100 Code TV show is a Swedish crime thriller, which originally aired in 2015 on Germany’s Sky Krimi. The story unfolds in Stockholm, as the authorities investigate the connection between area killings and murders in New York City. Over the past year, a series of young, blue-eyed, blonde women have been found dead in fields of flowers.
NYPD Detective Tommy Conley (Monaghan) is on loan to the Stockholm police, where he is assigned to work with local investigator Mikael Eklund (Nyqvist). Since each man is battling demons of his own, the two take a distinct dislike to one another. Still, they must put aside their feelings and work together, since the killer is still on the loose and shows no signs of stopping.
Conley will not sleep until he’s found the murderer and saves any potential victims from the same gruesome fate. His unique approach doesn’t sit well with his new partner, who works by-the-book and isn’t fond of Americans.
Still grieving the death of his wife, Eklund was counting down the days to retirement, when this case landed on his desk. Now he has to juggle a high-profile investigation with his rather fraught personal life, which centers on raising his 17-year-old daughter, Hanna (Jankell).
It’s Mikael’s chief, Karin Hammar (Jonsson), who persuades him to take the case. She has some complicated feelings for him but knows he is the man for the job. Can she ensure their past won’t interfere with this investigation?
Working alongside Conley and Eklund are Jonsson (Bejarano), who could be mistaken for a walking encyclopedia. He harbors deep feelings for Ebba (Hall), who has quite a tough shell and seems not to reciprocate. Rounding out the team are Phille (Berglund), an IT specialist, and Josephine (Stiernstedt), an intelligence analyst.
Meanwhile, Hanna is struggling with difficult memories of her mother. To make matters worse, Mikael’s relationship with the girl is tense, at best. Despite her inexperience, now that her father is a single parent, she is frequently left alone. When an older man offers her the love and attention she longs for, she takes comfort in it, to her own peril.
Episode #12 — Everytime You Think You’re Winning
Conley tries to save Eklund’s life; Asha is arrested.
First aired: August 1, 2018
