Springtide | Springfloden
Spring Tide is a ten part thriller by Rolf and Cilla Börjlind’s (Beck, Arne Dahl) adapted from their own best selling book.

Also stars Helena Bergström, Dag Malmberg, Johan Widerberg, Cecilia Nilsson and Dar Salim.
The Most Forbidden | Det mest förbjudna
This three part drama is based on Kerstin Thorvall’s semi-autobiographical feminist novel from 1976. Kerstin’s (Cilla Thorell) beloved father dies when she is eleven years old, so she grows up with just her oppressive mother. In adulthood, Kerstin rebels against her mother by confronting her repressed sexuality with several destructive men. When The Most Forbidden came out it led to a fierce debate about how middle-aged women should live their lives. Also stars Anna Bjelkerud and Magnus Krepper, .
