Daniel Alfredson (The Girl Who Played with Fire) is onboard to direct three English language movies based on Håkan Nesser’s forthcoming Intrigo trilogy, which Alfredson is co-writing with Ditta Bongenhelm.
The Intrigo trilogy, entitled Death Of An Author, Dear Agne and Samaria will be published worldwide in Summer 2017. They are set in an undefined country somewhere in northern Europe and are said to deal with the problems of escape, dark hidden secrets, guilt, revenge and atonement.
Producer Rick Dugdale told Variety: “I was immediately captured by Hakan Nesser’s work, who is a hugely successful Swedish novelist and with Daniel onboard to direct this could easily become the next Millennium Series. I look forward to turning these books into a thrilling adventure for all audiences.”
Production for the Intrigo movies is set to begin early 2017.
