Based on the novel Muleum by Erlend Loe, Kamikaze follows Julie (Series Mania Best Actress award winner Marie Reuther, Seaside Hotel), a fierce and charming 18-year-old who embarks on a journey of rediscovery after losing her parents and brother in a plane crash.

In an instant, Julie finds herself alone in a large mansion with expensive cars in the garage and, in theory, everything that most people only dream of: youth, beauty, and lots. of. money. But material possessions hold no value to Julie anymore and she is forced to search for a reason to go on. So she sets off on a wild and turbulent trip that takes her from her native Denmark to the far corners of the world.

The cast includes Charlotte Munck (The Investigation) as Astrid, Julie’s mother; Johan Rheborg (Kieler Street) as Thomas, Julie’s Father; Mads Reuther (Ride Upon the Storm) as Tom, Julie’s brother; Aleksandr Kuznetsov (Better than Us) as Krysztof; Carla Philip Røder (The Lawyer) as Constance; Vidhi Kastebo (Iqbal & the Jewel of India) as Sofia; Casper Kjær Jensen (Darkness: Those Who Kill) as Micke; and Anders Matthesen (What Goes Around) as Psyko-Bo.

Kamikaze is the first Max Original commissioned in Denmark and the first produced in Europe that will stream day and date on HBO Max. The eight-episode drama series is written by Johanne Algren (Holiday), conceptualized by Annette K. Olesen (Borgen), and directed by Kaspar Munk (Ride Upon the Storm).
