Sleeping Dog synopsis: What is Sleeping Dog about on Netflix?
Sleeping Dog follows Mike Atlas (Riemelt), a fallen cop living on the streets, per the synopsis. He and an up-and-coming prosecutor, Jule Andergast (Finckh), work together to try and figure out the answers to an old case they thought was closed.
But when a new death happens, they find themselves tangled up in a conspiracy, which may involve those in the highest positions, including the judiciary. Or, the incident could be related to a terrorist attack that happened over a year ago. What they’re going to find is unknown. But it is a Pandora’s Box of hidden information.
The trailer reveals the challenges Mike and Jule will be facing, how the fallen detective actually has a daughter, and he has personal challenges to face himself, and the action that comes with the mystery thriller story. The video is only in German on YouTube; however, if you look up the series on Netflix, the video plays in English for you to check it out!
Sleeping Dog premieres Thursday, June 222, 2023, on Netflix.
