The Cop

The police officer PEKKA MANNINEN goes undercover into a Russian drug gang. Treading the fine line between the legal and the illegal, Manninen begins to confuse the roles of police officer and criminal, until he goes too far and there’s no turning back.

The Underworld Trilogy is an uncompromising glimpse into transnational organized crime through the lives of three different people – a prisoner, a cop and a lawyer – who find themselves caught up in circumstances beyond their control.

Set in Stockholm, St. Petersburg and Helsinki, these three independent, yet interconnected mini-series offer a thought-provoking observation into the links between the penal system, drug-trafficking and money laundering.

Make one wrong decision.  Pay the price for the rest of your life. Welcome to the harsh realities that dictate the rules of the criminal underworld.
