C More / TV4 have announced that Hans Rosenfeldt and Camilla Ahlgren will adapt Cry Wolf (Vargasommar) for the small screen from Rosenfeldt’s novel of the same name, marking the first time that the pair have worked together since The Bridge (Bron / Broen).
Hannah Wester, a detective in the remote northern Swedish town of Haparanda, finds herself on the precipice of chaos when a wolf is found with human remains in its stomach. The remains are linked to a bloody drug deal across the border in Finland. But how did the victim end up in the woods outside of Haparanda? And where have the drugs and money gone?
Hannah and her colleagues are soon caught up in an increasingly complex investigation. But time is scarce and they aren’t the only ones looking. When the secretive and deadly Katja shows up, unexpected and brutal events start to pile up and, in just a few days, life in the border town is turned upside down. Not least for Hannah, who is finally forced to confront her own past.
Hans Rosenfeldt said: “It will be so much fun to return to Cry Wolf again, and it is even more fun that I can do it together with my talented best friend Camilla. Together, I am convinced that we can create a crime story with its own appeal. The tension does not lie in who did what, but more as a cat and mouse game, and how will our characters survive and be able to live on with the decisions they make.”
Cry Wolf is slated to begin filming in 2023.
