Psychological Serial Killer Thriller The Chestnut Man Is Becoming People's Latest Netflix Obsession

Need a new Netflix series to watch? Look no further because people are raving about new psychological serial killer thriller The Chestnut Man. You can watch the trailer here:


The six-part series is a Danish-language show about a psychopathic serial killer who is terrorising the capital city of Copenhagen.

The police make a discovery of a young woman who is found brutally murdered in a playground with one of her hands missing.

Next to her lies a small man made of chestnuts.

Young detective Naia Thulin (played by Danica Curcic) is assigned the case and a piece of evidence is soon discovered on the chestnut man which links to a missing person who was presumed dead.

Dun dun duuuun.

People on social media have become 'obsessed' with the show, which is brought to us by Søren Sveistrup - the creator of Danish drama The Killing.

Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: "Watched all of The Chestnut Man yesterday. I'm obsessed. Hope so badly there'll be a season 2!"

Another added: "Really enjoyed The Chestnut Man on Netflix. Stick it out until episode 3; everything that follows makes it sooooo worth it."

And a third commented: "The Chestnut Man on Netflix is one of the best series that I've watched this year so far. Peak psychological thriller adaptation."

Tesha Crawford, Director, Global Franchises at Netflix, said in a statement: "After the success of The Rain, we are excited to announce our next Danish Original which will be building on the great tradition of Nordic Noir.

"We were instantly compelled by the strong story and Søren's voice. We are happy to continue the collaboration with SAM Productions and are looking forward to bringing The Chestnut Man to our global audience."

You can watch The Chestnut Man on Netflix now.
