More detailed series description via press release:

Police Sergeant Timo Harjunpää from Helsinki Murder Squad would love to spend his summer holiday in peace and quiet with his family, but his relentless job follows him everywhere.  With his partner Onerva Nykänen, Harjupää faces the whole spectrum of humanity, from the darkest pits of organized crime to the saddest cases of human life, including men brainwashed by incel-ideology, hackers sabotaging the society’s infrastructure, youth criminals hardened by their home lives, and sadistic prostitutes.  The beautiful, summery Helsinki looks very different in the eyes of the Crime Squad Sergeants: no one is safe, and anything can happen – anywhere and anytime.
