Watch the Promotional Trailer

From the producers of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Wallander comes a new Scandinavian crime series featuring uncompromising crime reporter Annika Bengtzon. The series of six crime films is based on Liza Marklund’s best-selling novels, which have sold over 13 million copies in more than 30 languages worldwide and made Annika Bengtzon one of Scandinavian crime’s most popular characters. Sheis a very modern woman, a workaholic and mother of two struggling to keep her marriage alive. Fearless in her constant search for the truth, her journalist’s instincts and troubled past lead her to the edge of danger and to the heart of every crime. From going undercover in a strip club, to probing a complex spiral of terrorism, travelling to the Costa del Sol to investigate murders connected to a drug trade and narrowly escaping a bullet to rescue a missing boy, Annika stares criminals in the face to hunt down her story.

A high profile production with some of Scandinavia’s finest talent attached,including rising star Malin Crépin as Annika.
