Norwegian television series GRENSELAND heading to Netflix

The Norwegian crime series Grenseland [+] (Borderland in English) has been sold to Netflix, but this deal has caused some controversy, Medier24 reports. 

Production company Monster Scripted [+] sold the rights to the streaming service, but another company, Herrick Entertainment, believe they own the rights to the film. Monster Scripted sold the rights for 17 million NOK (just under $3 million USD), and now Herrick believes they are the ones who sell the series internationally.

The two companies have sued each other over disagreements for the rights to the series, and have attended the Oslo District Court because of it.

The disagreement does not affect the series screening in Norway but does affect international sales.

Emma Vestrheim is the editor-in-chief of Cinema Scandinavia. Originally from Australia, she is now based in Bergen, Norway, and attends major Nordic film festivals to conduct interviews and review new films.

    I have my fingers crossed that something wickedly good this way comes from Norway soon!
