It’s Saturday and Netflix in the United States got treated to an additional four titles today. Two of which are Japanese titles, an exciting thriller and Netflix’s roundup of its wins at the Emmy awards last weekend.
Here’s a full roundup of what’s new on Netflix for September 28th:
Genre: Crime, Thriller

Released earlier this year is the crime thriller featuring a face you should be fairly familiar with. We’re referring to Nikolaj Coster-Waldau who leads and played Jamie Lannister in the HBO hit, Game of Thrones. Also featuring in this movie who featured in Game of Thrones is Carice van Houten.
The movie is about a Copenhagen police officer seeking justice for his partner’s murder.
Reviews are generally quite mixed for the movie but if you’re looking for a title a bit like James Bond, this is for you.
