Arctic Circle is a Finnish-German crime thriller TV series that premiered in 2018 on Amazon Prime Video. The show has been created by Olli Haikka, Petja Peltomaa, and Joona Tena. The series stars Iina Kuustonen, Pihla Viitala, and Venla Ronkainen in lead roles. The story of Arctic Circle revolves around two police officers, Nina Kautsalo (played by Iina Kuustonen) and Thomas Lorenz (played by Maximilian Brückner), who are investigating a mysterious virus outbreak in the remote Lapland region of Finland. The virus is initially believed to be a new strain of the deadly H5N1 bird flu, but Nina and Thomas soon discover that it is something far more dangerous and sinister.

As the investigation progresses, Nina crosses paths with a young girl named Mia (played by Venla Ronkainen), who is the key to solving the case. Mia is an illegal immigrant who has been smuggled into Finland from a Russian cargo ship, and she is carrying the deadly virus inside her body. With the help of Thomas and Mia, Nina tries to unravel a complex web of conspiracy and deceit, which involves a pharmaceutical company, a Russian oligarch, and a criminal organization.

Meanwhile, Nina is also dealing with her own personal demons. She has recently been diagnosed with a rare genetic disease that causes her to lose her memory intermittently. As she struggles to keep her disease under control and steer the investigation in the right direction, Nina forms a deep bond with Mia, who she sees as a surrogate daughter.

As the investigation continues, Nina and Thomas uncover more evidence that links the virus outbreak to a high-level cover-up. They eventually discover that the virus was intentionally released by a pharmaceutical company in order to create demand for their own vaccine. In the end, Nina and Thomas are able to expose the truth behind the conspiracy and ensure that justice is served.

Arctic Circle is a gripping and thrilling crime drama that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats. The show's unique setting in the Lapland region adds an extra layer of intrigue to the story, as the harsh climate and remote location make it difficult for Nina and Thomas to solve the case. The characters are complex and well-developed, and the acting is superb throughout. The chemistry between Nina and Mia is especially moving, as they form an unlikely bond in the midst of chaos.

Overall, Arctic Circle is a must-watch for fans of crime dramas and thrillers. The show's intricate plot, strong performances, and stunning visuals make it one of the best shows of its genre. If you're looking for a show that will keep you on the edge of your seat and leave you wanting more, look no further than Arctic Circle.
