Jordskott (Swedish pronunciation: [ˈjuːɖʂkɔt:] "soil shoot") is a Swedish TV series, first broadcast by SVT in 2015.[2] Filming took place in Sala and Ragunda in the summer of 2014. The series began broadcasting on ITV Encore in the UK on June 10, 2015[3], and on Canal+ Seriale in Poland on October 10, 2016.[4]

In the first season of Jordskott, police detective Eva Thörnblad (Moa Gammel), returns to her hometown of Silverhöjd, seven years after her daughter Josefine disappeared beside a lake in the forest. Josefine's body was never found and local police determined that she had drowned. Upon Eva's return, a local boy is missing and she begins to look for similarities between this disappearance and that of her daughter. At the same time, she has to deal with the death and probate of her late father and his large timber felling and processing business, Thörnblad Mineral & Cellulosa.

Eva teams up with Göran Wass (Göran Ragnerstam), a Rikskriminalen detective (and a member of a secret society), and Tom Aronsson (Richard Forsgren), a local detective. They discover that the children's disappearance is inextricably tangled with the conflict between local and mystical elements wishing to protect the forest and the community at large, which depend on Thörnblad Mineral & Cellulosa.[5]

Following positive reception and strong international sales for the first series, a second series, Jordskott II, followed.[6] It aired from 15 October 2017 in Sweden.[7] Eva is back in Stockholm, working with Göran and Tom, to find missing teenagers and to solve the mystery of a man who dies as he turns to stone. The investigation leads into her mother's past and has connections with Göran's organisation, Envoyés de la Nature (EN) or Nature's Messengers.
