‘The Woods’ is a Polish series in the mystery thriller genre. It is based on the Harlan Coben novel of the same name.
The story takes place in 2019, but is based on an incident that happened in 1994. Warsaw prosecutor Paweł Kopiński’s sister goes to Summer camp in 1994 with her friends and disappears in the woods, never to be found again.
Paweł is grief-stricken and cannot come to terms with his sister’s disappearance even after so many years. Then suddenly, in 2019, a dead body is found in the vicinity of where she had disappeared. The prosecutor believes that the dead body holds a key to the disappearance of his sister and insists on reopening investigations into the decades-ago disappearance of his sister. There were four kids, including his sister, that had ventured into the woods. Only two dead bodies have been recovered. What happened to the other two?
This forms the rest of the story.
