What Happened to Kristine at The End of “the Chestnut Man”?
Rosa was summoned to the chestnut farm by Simon, who wanted to tell her what had happened to Kristine. Thulin, on the other hand, discovered that the chestnuts he had taken from the crime scene belonged to a type of tree native to the island of Mn. Unaware that Thulin was the Chestnut Man, Thulin led Simon to Mn.
Thulin and Rosa were snatched up by Simon, who was clever enough to do so. But Hess interfered, and he saved Rosa from a grisly death. Simon set the home on fire and kidnapped Thulin in order to kill them.
Hess was able to save both Rosa and Thulin after a frantic battle. A tree limb penetrated Simon’s chest in an automobile accident, killing him instantly.
Kristine was reunited with her family at the end of The Chestnut Man. Finally, the matter was closed by the police. In order to spend as much time as possible with her kid, Thulin transferred to the cybercrime team. Following his resolution of the Bucharest case, Hess decided against selling his apartment and will most likely return to Copenhagen.
Thulin’s revelation that her daughter, Le, had added Hess to her family tree hinted to an underlying relationship between Hess and Thulin. Le had previously asked Thulin to put Sebastian, Thulin’s casual companion, in the family tree, but Thulin declined since she was unsure of their relationship. In contrast, she believed she had a bright future with Hess.
After the truth came to light, Linus Bekker, who was falsely convicted of kidnapping and murdering Kristine, was released. Chestnut Man’s atrocities were celebrated by Bekker, a man with a schizophrenia diagnosis.
He was proud to be a part of Simon’s ambitious plans, and he may even strive to commit the same sins that he has committed. Future events will provide further light on the situation.
The Chestnut Man: A Brief Overview of The Story
With her daughter Le (Liva Forsberg) by her side, Naia Thulin (Danica Curcic) is a police detective and a single mother who lives in Copenhagen. Naia is unable to spend enough time with her daughter because of her engrossing fieldwork.
Her next step is to apply for a desk job with the cybercrimes unit. Nylander, Naia’s senior, agrees to serve as a reference for her employment application. New partner Mark Hess (Mikkel Boe Foe Flsgaard) is assigned to her by Nylander instead. Personal tragedy has forced Mark to go to Denmark as a Europol liaison officer.
Forensic specialist Simon Genz (David Dencik) discovers that the chestnut man figure has Kristine Hartung’s fingerprints on it. In response to Thulin’s plea, Nylander refuses to tamper with a case that has already been closed: Kristine’s disappearance.
The police work feverishly to solve the case of a mother’s murder and Kristine’s fingerprints on the chestnut guy, despite their meager resources.
The Chestnut Man’s Identity Is Unknown.
Three dead bodies were recovered on Orum’s property on the island of Mon in 1987 by officer Marius. Marius discovered a wounded foster child while investigating the site, but he was assassinated before he could help the child.
There were a number of chestnut figures in the 1987 crime scene photographs that Hess examined. Mon and John Brink were the next stop on his investigation into the case. Orum and his wife fostered two sets of twins for money, according to John’s revelation.
John discovered the foster children in the basement, as well as many VHS tapes containing footage of Orum and his wife abusing them. The tape shows that they trapped the youngster in a room and made him build chestnut men.
John theorized that maybe Orum felt guilty about it and thus killed his family and shot himself in the end. Toke and Astrid Bering were the two foster children who survived the catastrophe.
Despite Hess’s repeated requests, John was unable to supply any useful information. Fortunately, Hess discovered a Toke photograph while visiting John’s sister and was able to put the puzzle pieces together.
The twins were abused and ill-treated by Orum and his wife. For his actions, Toke may have killed his family, and Astrid was diagnosed with depression and drug dependence as a result of his retaliatory actions.
Toke blamed Rosa for the twins’ tumultuous childhood because of a single incident. Eventually, he became a psychopath and went on to become Simon Genz, a forensic specialist. To avenge Rosa Petersen Hartung, he killed the wicked mothers and kidnapped Rosa’s daughter Kristine.
