Kristoffer Nyholm was lead director on Danish phenomenon THE KILLING, helming episodes 6, 7, 16, 17, 19 and 20 in the brilliant first series. For series 2, which has its UK debut on 19th November on BBC4, Kristoffer directed episodes 1,2, 5,6, 9, and 10.

In 2012 he directed 2 episodes of the new Jean Reno series Jo - A Cop In Paris, a new English laguage series for Atlantique Productions, filmed in Paris. He has also recently completed work on a 4-part adaptation of the bestselling Swedish political crime novel, Between Summer’s Longing and Winter’s End. At once a riveting anti-procedure police procedural, a psychological drama, and a black satire, this cult novel offers a possible explanation for the assassination of Prime Minister Olaf Palme in February 1986. Nordisk Film is producing with Swedish National Television, who will make it their flagship programme for 2013.

Kristoffer has worked under Lars von Trier on a number of projects, including The Boss of It All, The Idiots, Breaking The Waves and Epidemic. He has also directed a number of music videos, commercials, shorts and documentaries.

UK television drama includes the Inspector Morse prequel series, ENDEAVOUR 2, for ITV/Mammoth Screen and Eleven Films' three part poltergeist horror, THE ENFIELD HAUNTING, based on the Enfield poltergeist occurrences of the late 70s for Sky.
