The BBC synopsis for Episode 3, “The Empty Hearse,” reads:

“In the final episode of this new series, written by Steven Moffat, a case of stolen letters leads Sherlock Holmes into a long conflict with Charles Augustus Magnussen, the Napoleon of blackmail, and the one man he truly hates.

“But how do you tackle a foe who knows the personal weakness of every person of importance in the Western world?” (via ScreenCrush)

The “Sherlock” cast and crew have been talking up the new villain, who is played by Lars Mikkelsen.

"They have some extraordinary adventures in the first and second episodes and then in the third they are challenged by a situation and a master villain who brings him to his knees,” said Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock). “What’s exciting about this series is we see Sherlock in real peril.”

Magnussen is "not a mad chaotic villain, not like the award-winning performance Andrew Scott gave as Moriarty,” Cumberbatch added

“He will chime with people who know what a bully is - he is the archetypal bully and his means and methods are chillingly everyday in our culture. He’s a smart creation, very real and not fantastical. He’s got a foreign perspective on the English culture which Holmes so perfectly personifies and the fact that he fights on the side on the angels. He sort of reduces what Holmes protects."

"Lars Mikkelsen is fantastic, he is a brilliant villain,” said Martin Freeman (John).” For those who will miss Moriaty, which is totally understandable, we have another fantastic nemesis for Sherlock and John – he does it superbly."

"He allowed us to move the character on,” said series creator Steven Moffat. “He's now Danish. Like everything in Sherlock, we take the original and move it around slightly. I think he's an outstanding villain. He will give you proper chills and make you shrivel at times."
