Netflix’s Polish series “The Woods” is the streaming platform’s third adaptation of a Harlan Coben novel.
“The Woods” tells the story of a Warsaw prosecutor, Pawel Kopińsk, who has lived a pretty tragic life. When he was a teenager working at a summer camp, his younger sister went missing and was presumed to be dead. His mother unable to cope with the loss of her daughter abandoned Pawel a few months later and as an adult he lost his wife to cancer. Now Pawel is being pulled back into his dark childhood after investigators discovered a dead body with stories and pictures of Pawel in his pockets. When Pawel realizes that the corpse belongs to one of his old camp friends that had presumably died in the same incident that claimed his sister, he begins to investigate what actually happened in the woods that summer.
