Synopsis
Birahima, a ten-year-old Guinean orphan, tells the story with the help of four dictionaries and a lot of irony of how he is thrown into the tribal war when he tries to join his aunt in Liberia. Yacouba, a scoundrel who accompanies him, convinces him to become a child soldier, while he establishes himself as a grigriman among the combatants. In the midst of chaos, torn between the many enemy factions, Birahima grows up fast and learns to distrust the stories he is told.

Synopsis

In the second season of STHLM Requiem, based on Kristina Olsson’s novels about Fredrika Bergman, we revisit two of our main characters during six intense episodes spanning over only one day – and one crisis.

In Stockholm, a Boeing 747 takes off for New York City. As the plane reaches cruising altitude, a message is found on board: the plane is hijacked and will explode if the demands are not met. The unknown hijackers want the deportation of a certain man in Sweden revoked, and a certain location, that turns out to be a CIA black site, closed for good. Fredrika Bergman, now working at the Swedish Justice Department has to reunite with Police Investigator Alex Recht, in order to resolve the situations. Their investigation reveals a story much more complex than they could imagine, and Fredrika’s perception of justice is challenged, as she is faced by one person’s desperate pursuit for revenge.

Synopsis
After having burnt all her bridges within in the metropolitan police, Anita, a young female detective is forced to leave Reykjavik.The only post available is in her childhood village, an ugly oasis, sitting in the middle of an endless desert of black sand, where she has to face her abusive mother for the first time in 10 years. Although her first case initially seems to be an accident, i.e. when a dead tourist is found on the Black Beach, it sends her on a dark journey into the past, unravelling a serial killer that has been operating for years, disguising his murders as accidents. After a surviving witness from one of the attacks describes the killer as a female police officer, Anita realises that the killer could be a lot closer than she thought.

State of Happiness II

Synopsis

STATE OF HAPPINESS is a TV drama series that tells the story of Western prosperity, a changing nation, a Klondike town, and four young people who are thrown into a whirlwind of opportunites. Everything is moving, everything is new, it´s a great, big, at times scary, unknown. How are they all going to deal with it?

The second season of STATE OF HAPPINESS stretches from 1977 to 1980. The era of great disasters. Well 14 at Ekofisk Bravo is blowing out and a massive oil sheet creeps over the ocean, heading for the Klondike fishing bank. ”Environment Politics” is put on the agenda for the first time. ”Safety” is to follow, when in 1980 the hotel platform Aleksander Kielland capsizes and 123 people die, trapped inside. This is also the time when people start to make money, and as we shall see, some more than they can handle.

A story about how people deal with opportunities and change, both on a political and personal level – set in the first years of the oil boom in western Norway.
