This autumn, Black Lake returns to TV3 and Viaplay for a self-contained prequel to the hit psychological thriller that moves the action to the outermost archipelago of Sweden where Johan (Filip Berg) is being treated for drug use.
Johan Ceder (Filip Berg) tries to live up to his father’s expectations, but finds himself drawn into a hedonistic nightclub lifestyle. However, he eventually agrees to spare his family further embarrassment and begins treatment at a facility on the island of Kallskär.
But something doesn’t seem quite right… There are dark secrets on Kallskär that date back to World War II and beyond, and it transpires that a former patient disappeared without a trace, but nobody seems to want to know what really happened.
Fellow patients include Minnie (Hedda Stiernstedt) who is fighting for custody of her child, Isabelle (Alida Morberg) who has mental issues, Vincent (David Nzinga) who is trying to escape his criminal past, prominent smuggler and addict Amina (Bahar Pars), and Oscar (David Larsson) who struggles with his closed personality.
Meanwhile, the facility is run by the charismatic Uno Leijon (André Eriksen) who bought the manor house from the family of patient Gittan (Anja Landgré) who have owned the island for over 300 years.
The second season of Black Lake (Svartsjön) premieres on TV3 and Viaplay in Autumn 2018.
