The author of the article draws attention to the growing popularity of ,,new generation series” in Poland. He focuses primarily on the analysis of the series Raven. Whispers are heard after dark, which takes place in Podlasie region. Adamski analyzes this series in terms of how nature is portrayed in it and what role it plays, relative to the main character and the main plot of the narrative. In his analyzes, he starts from the metaphor of the Roman deity - Janus, and also refers to the aesthetics of Nordic Noir, which had a significant impact on the development of the Polish crime series. However, while the message of Scandinavian series has often been associated with social criticism, the narratives, whose places of action are located in the Polish province (a very important role of nature), more often have a metaphysical, ecological or mythological dimension.
