Based on Kristina Ohlsson’s novels, Stockholm Requiem (Sthlm Rekviem) is a stylish Swedish drama featuring criminologist Frederika Bergmann as its main character.
After a tragic car accident, she accepts a job at Stockholm police’s special investigation unit. Despite her colleagues’ initial hostility towards her, she applies her unique perspective and sense of logic to help them solve their cases.
The ten episode first season, comprising five two-part stories, was released on C More in Sweden in October 2018. Liv Mjönes (The Lawyer) plays Fredrika Bergman with Jonas Karlsson (Beck) as Alex Recht and Alexej Manvelov (Before We Die, Occupied) as Peder Rydh.
