STHLM-Requiem_DVD_FINAL

Cast: Liv Mjönes (Agent Hamilton), Mikael Birkkjaer (Borgen), Jonas Karlsson (Beck), Alexej Manvelov (Occupied, Arne Dahl), Sanna Sundqvist, Axel Daeseleire, Joke Devynck, Natali Broods, Ronny Waterschoot

Synopsis
While each episode is self-contained, they are all framed by a main, cohesive case involving all of the series’ main characters. The series has a unique time scale, each film taking place a year after the previous one. This will allow the series to chronicle the greater changes within its characters and society.

Little girl disappears from a platform at Stockholm’s Central Station. The girl’s father quickly falls under suspicion and every effort is made to locate him. New recruit Fredrika Bergman however, suspects that he is innocent and she battles to steer her colleagues Alex and Peder in another direction.

An elderly priest and his wife, who have been secretly helping refugees for years, are found dead in their apartment in the Odenplan area of Stockholm. Having left a note, outwardly it appears to have been suicide, the police suspect foul play.

There’s an Israeli legend about “the Paper Boy”, a figure who abducts children in the night. No-one really remembers this old myth until two children disappear from the Jewish Salomon School in Stockholm. When a teacher is shot dead in front of his pupils the next day, people wonder if the Paper Boy has reawakened.

The remains of a young woman reported missing several years before are discovered pasted in the concrete below Slussen. She was one of Alex and Peder’s cases in episode 1. Soon more grim discoveries are made at the crime scene – hidden secrets, decades old.

A finance executive is found murdered in his luxury home and a cryptic note is discovered at the scene. More murders follow, all seemingly unconnected apart from the fact that each of the victims had previously been investigated by the team (in the previous episodes) and all of them somehow evaded justice.

But everything is not as it seems. The real reason Madina has come to Finland is not destruction, but reconstruction, as Madina tries to reunite with her long lost daughter.

Synopsis

Ruben, Durex and Nora are all students in their final year of uni.

Suffering from a lack of self-confidence, Ruben has already failed his exams once and is too shy to admit he has feelings for Nora. His childhood friend Durex, who is possibly the most annoying guy in the world, isn’t much help on either front. When Ruben finds out that Nora has a side job as a drug dealer, and is about to leave for Amsterdam to bring back a new type of drug, Ruben plucks up the courage to go with her. The trip to Amsterdam is the perfect chance for Ruben to finally seduce Nora, but unfortunately for him, Durex decides to tag along for the ride.

As the trio explore Europe’s craziest capital, their lives become a lot more complicated when they find out that the drug they’ve come to collect belongs to Amsterdam’s most notorious criminals. Ruben, Durex and Nora quickly realise that if they want to get their old lives back they’ll have to stop acting like losers and become real heroes.

Synopsis

On the shores of Lake Geneva lies the small Swi ss town of Vevey. It’s the end of the 70s. On his release from prison, Eddy – a hard-drinking, 40-year-old Belgian – is met by his friend Osman. They’ve made a deal: Osman will let Eddy stay in his shed, and in exchange, Eddy will take care of his 7-year-old daughter Samira while her mother is in the hospital. It’s the Christmas season, but their shared, grinding poverty has made Eddy quite bitter. Then Charlie Chaplin’s death is announced, as well as the true extent of his fabulous wealth. Eddy starts daydreaming… and comes up with a crazy idea: what if he stole the actor’ s corpse and demanded a ransom from the family? Loosely based on real events, THE PRICE OF FAME spins a web around the audacious concept of a resuscitated Chaplin, a Chaplin whose soul gradually possesses the minds of these two misfits, until their journey becomes a tale worthy of the Little Tramp himself!
