Walter Presents is kicking off 2022 with a new Scandi Season and the first show in that season is WALTER PRESENTS: OUTLIER which sees a criminal psychologist in a race against time to prove that the police have arrested the wrong person.
Teenager Elle Jannok walks home from a party in Kautokeino when she discovers a mobile phone lying on the side of the road, ringing. The voice on the other end of the line asks for Sofie, before the connection cuts out. A few days later, in a village several hours away, the police make the grim discovery of the body of nineteen-year-old Sofie in a caravan. In London Maja Angell is researching serial killers for her dissertation when she hears about the murder case from her home country. She defies all advice, leaves the university and travels north with a message for the local police: you have charged the wrong guy for the murder. Maja is met with opposition from the police who are proud to have solved the case, but eventually their doubt begins to show. Slowly but surely, Maja becomes involved in the investigation.
