Arctic Circle (Finnish: Ivalo) is Finnish-German crime drama, which will premiere on Finnish streaming service Elisa Viihde in Christmas 2018 and later on Yle.[1] The series stars Iina Kuustonen, Maximilian Brückner, Pihla Viitala, Clemens Schick[2] and Susanna Haavisto.

Arctic Circle is the first co-production between Finland’s Yellow Film & TV and Germany’s Bavaria Film, picked up for world distribution by Paris-based Lagardère Studios. The series is created by Yellow Film & TV CEO Olli Haikka and Head of Drama Petja Peltomaa with Joona Tena who shares the writing credit with Iceland’s experienced Jón Atli Jónasson. Arctic Circle is direct by Finnish born Germany based Hannu Salonen.


Set in icy Finnish Lapland, Finnish police officer Nina Kautsalo (Iina Kuustonen) finds a nearly dead prostitute in a cabin in the wilderness. The case takes a surprise turn when a deadly virus is found in the prostitute's body. Nina and German virologist Thomas Lorenz (Maximilian Brückner) start investigating the case.
