Viaplay is a European streaming service that features movies and TV series from the Nordic region - Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, etc. The service includes Nordic crime series like DNA, in which a decorated detective in Copenhagen is shattered when his baby vanishes, until a DNA discovery 5 years later ignites a ray of hope; and Thin Blue Line, an intimate portrayal of the daily life of four police officers, where the line between private and professional life is blurred as tensions heighten in the lively and crime-ridden city of Malmö, Sweden. Other series include Delete Me, about Marion and Marit, who are about to graduate high school, but in a world where status is everything, they discover that a seemingly small act of jealousy can go viral and change lives forever; and Trom, in which a local activist is found dead during a whale hunt and journalist Hannis Martinsson risks his own life to uncover the truth in the isolated island community of the Faroes.
Also available on Viaplay are films like R.S.V.P, a story, told through nine different parties and celebrations, about a 37-year-old single nurse who is on a perpetual search for love which increasingly causes her to question whether it even exists; and Margrete - Queen of the North, an award-winning film in which Queen Margarete unites Denmark, Norway and Sweden in the Kalmar Union, which she rules in the name of her adopted son, King Erik.
