Netflix recently released the Danish mystery series “The Chestnut Man,” which is perfect fuel for your nightmares. The series, set in Copenhagen, is centered around the murder of a young woman, who’s found on a playground with one of her hands missing. The most unsettling part about the scene is that a small man made of chestnuts is hanging over her body. After further investigation, the detective on the cast finds evidence that the peculiar figure connects the murder to another missing person’s case. In that situation, the girl who went missing a year earlier was presumed dead, but the discovery could change everything.
The series is a total slow burner, and keeps you guessing about what the truth is behind the mysterious murders. The first season of “The Chestnut Man” consists of six hour-long episodes that are gritty and suspenseful. It’s an easy binge-watch if you’re looking for something to keep you glued to the TV and constantly questioning what could happen next.
