Wgn America has acquired the U.S. rights to three foreign crime dramas as part of the network’s new “Prime Crime” lineup, Variety has learned.
Canadian series “Shoot the Messenger” centers on the complex relationships between crime reporters and the police.

Wgn America is going on an international crime spree.
The cable network has acquired the U.S. TV rights to a trio of foreign crime dramas: 100 Code (Sweden), Shoot the Messenger (Canada) and Pure (Canada). And their casts offer a dose of Hollywood sizzle: 100 Code stars Dominic Monaghan (Lost, the Lord of the Rings trilogy) as a NYPD detective who heads to Stockholm to track down a serial killer who’s targeting young, blonde women with blue eyes. (The late Michael Nyqvist, of Girl With the Dragon Tattoo fame, plays his new Swedish partner.)
