On Friday the winners were announced for Kristallen 2017 at the Stockholm International Fairs and Congress Centre in a ceremony hosted by journalist Kattis Ahlström.
Kristallen serves to reward innovative thinking, originality and craftmanship in Swedish television and, whilst nineteen statues were handed out during the ceremony, just three were drama specific.
Alexandra Rapaport was named Best Actress for playing Sonja Ek in Gåsmamman, where she is forced to become a fully fledged alpha female to take care of her husband’s shady marijuana business and is drawn against her will into the criminal underworld to save her family.
Bonus Family won Best Drama for its portrayal of two families and the complications that arise in their attempt to form a new family dynamic following divorce. It will be available to a global audience on Netflix later this year.
