New Swedish Drama Series In Progress

Swedish comedian Robert Gustafsson known for The Hundred Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared (Hundraåringen som klev ut genom fönstret och försvann, 2013) will play the main character in a new psychological drama based on the idea of Swedish criminologist and novelist Leif GW Persson.

The choice for the main character is indeed raising eyebrows, since Robert Gustafsson usually plays comic roles. For example, he’s been a regular guest on the Swedish political satire show entitled Parlamentet (The Parliament), and play Tobias in Morran and Tobias (Morran och Tobias). Nonetheless, this excites many.

The script for the yet untitled project is in progress, and the shooting starts in October. In the director’s chair we find Kjell-Åke Andersson known for Nobody Owns Me (Mig äger ingen, 2013) starring Mikael Persbrandt. The drama will be screened on Kanal 5 first, then on Viaplay. Cinema Scandinavia is looking forward to seeing the result.
