Swedish Film Trilogy Gets Netflix Follow-Up

Netflix has ordered a six-part series from SF Studios set ten years after the events depicted in the Snabba Cash Swedish film trilogy.

Set in the gritty criminal underground of Stockholm, the films were based on the book of the same name by bestselling author Jens Lapidus. Oskar Söderlund (The Fat and the Angry, Greyzone) developed the series together with Lapidus, who also has an executive producer role on the drama. The series is being produced by Nicklas Wikström Nicastro (A Man Called Ove)

“I have been waiting for an opportunity to continue with Snabba Cash,” Lapidus said. “The stories are still epic but also depict our time in an unfiltered light. It will be amazing.”

Tesha Crawford, director of international originals for Northern Europe at Netflix, added, ”We are happy to announce this new Swedish series and to bring the world from these much-loved movies back to life in a fresh and exciting way. To do this, we are fortunate to work with some amazing Swedish creatives. We are excited about working with Oskar and Jens and their vision for this new chapter of Snabba Cash. With SF Studios on board, we also have an incredibly strong local partner.”
