Plot Synopsis

BORDERTOWN is a crime drama series that centers on Detective Inspector Kari Sorjonen, one of the most respected officers at the National Bureau of Investigation in Finland. When his wife barely survives brain cancer, Sorjonen decides to take his family to an idyllic small town near the border of Russia, to live a quiet peaceful life. But how peaceful is life on the border between two worlds? BORDERTOWN had its U.S. premiere on Friday, March 31, 2017 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, when Netflix released the 11-episode first season.
Netflix released the U.S. premiere of BORDERTOWN's 10-episode second season on Saturday, February 2, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT. While Kari obsesses over a string of twisted murders, Lena contends with ghosts from her old life in Russia -- and both find their families in danger. In the two-part season opener, "Five Finger Exercise," a mother and her son are shot dead in a car, and her abusive ex seems like the obvious culprit. But Kari and Lena suspect there's more to the crime. Evidence found at the second murder scene sends Lena back to Russia to confront someone from her past. Katia receives an unexpected visitor.
