Based on the characters of the hugely popular Martin Beck detective novels by Swedish husband-and-wife writers Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö, Beck – The Series sees the much-loved detective brought to life on the small screen. This collection of four feature-length films from 2016 sees detective Martin Beck investigating a murdered journalist, an unidentified body from a trailer fire, the brutal murder of a police officer and his family, and the cold shooting of two traffic officers by a man who is also later found dead.
Starring Peter Haber (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) as Beck, this volume sees one of the greatest police procedural partnerships come to an end as Beck is disbanded with the gruff Gunvald Larsson (Mikael Persbrandt – The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) to team up with a new partner, Oslo Detective Steinar Hovland, played by Kristofer Hivjul (Game of Thrones). Featuring the thrilling combination of complex woven details of police procedure and beautifully realised characters, this award-winning series continues to grow from strength to strength.
