From Saga Norén in "The Bridge" to Sarah Lund in "The Killing", there's a prestigious lineage of compelling Scandinavian female detectives. The titular Veronika Gren (played by Alexandra Rapaport) is ready to join them. They wouldn't be half as watchable if they weren't carrying some serious emotional baggage they have to wrestle alongside the mystery at hand. In Veronika's case, that's a potent combination of sleep-depriving nightmares and mind-dampening pills.

As Veronika's obsession with solving the case grows more resolute, her grasp on reality becomes less and less secure. With her mind seemingly beginning to unravel to a point where she's being haunted by ghoulish apparitions, Veronika finds it harder to convince those around her that she's getting close to finding the killer. And that might come at the cost of even more lives.

"We have worked so hard to make our vision come true and I am so proud of the result," Rapaport (also an executive producer on the show) said of the series. " I think the combination of mystery, whodunnit/crime and psychological thriller with a touch of something that might or might not be paranormal is unique and I really hope for our baby to be embraced by viewers.”

With all eight episodes available to stream in certain parts of the world, keep reading to find out how you can watch "Veronika" online — and potentially for free.
