May 27 (UPI) -- The BBC has picked up Danish crime series DNA starring Charlotte Rampling, along with Anders W. Berthelsen and Nicolas Bro of The Killing.
The BBC will air the eight-part series in Britain later this year.
DNA, from The Killing co-creator Torleif Hoppe, follows Berthelsen as Copenhagen police detective Rolf Larsen whose baby daughter goes missing.
The detective, five years later, gets a new lead on her disappearance due to a flaw in the Danis police's DNA database. Rolf then starts investigating a parallel case involving child trafficking along with Rampling's Claire Bobin, a French investigator.
Olivia Joof and Zofia Wichlacz also star.
"Beginning with a shocking event, DNA is an intriguing and unexpected crime series which will keep BBC viewers absorbed to the very end," head of programme acquisition at BBC Sue Deeks said in a statement.
Rampling is set to star in director Denis Villeneuve's upcoming reboot of Dune as Reverend Mother Mohiam. The film is expected to be released on Dec. 18.
