Netflix has dropped a first teaser for The Chestnut Man — we can feel goosebumps already

The Chestnut Man is coming to Netflix this autumn, and it already has a creepy poster and trailer. There’s even a tagline:

If you find one, he’s already found you…

Maybe we won’t be rushing to play conkers this year!

On a more serious note, here’s the synopsis:

The Chestnut Man is set in a quiet suburb of Copenhagen, where the police make a terrible discovery one blustery October morning. A young woman is found brutally murdered in a playground and one of her hands is missing. Next to her lies a small man made of chestnuts. The ambitious young detective Naia Thulin (Danica Curcic) is assigned to the case, along with her new partner, Mark Hess (Mikkel Boe Følsgaard). They soon discover a mysterious piece of evidence on the chestnut man — evidence connecting it to a girl who went missing a year earlier and was presumed dead — the daughter of politician (DK: Socialminister) Rosa Hartung (Iben Dorner).

The series is based on the debut novel by award winning writer Søren Sveistrup which has been translated into 28 languages and published in 50 countries and stars Danica Curcic (The Mist, Equinox), Mikkel Boe Følsgaard (A Royal Affair, Borgen), Iben Dorner (Borgen), Lars Ranthe (Another Round) and David Dencik (Chernobyl, James Bond ‘No Time To Die’) among others.
