TV4/C More Slate Premiere Dates for Agatha Christie’s Hjerson


Agatha Christie’s Hjerson is set to bow on C More on August 16, with linear broadcasting on TV4 beginning on August 24.

A whodunnit with a contemporary meta twist, Agatha Christie’s Hjerson stars Johan Rheborg in the leading role as detective Sven Hjerson and Hanna Alström as his sidekick Klara Sandberg. In the series, TV producer Klara pitches the idea for a new TV show starring Hjerson, who is now retired. ZDF Enterprises is in charge of the distribution outside of Scandinavian territories.

Agatha Christie’s Hjerson unfolds across four classic whodunnit murder mysteries and will air as both a film series of four 88-minute movies and as a television series of eight 44-minute episodes. It was produced by Patrik Andersson and Ulf Synnerholm at BR•F for TV4/C More, in co-production with ZDF, Nadcon and the Government of Åland, and in close collaboration with ZDF Enterprises and Agatha Christie Ltd. The series was produced with support from Nordisk Film & TV Fund. Agatha Christie’s Sven Hjerson was created and developed by Patrik Gyllström at BR•F and was written by Patrik Gyllström, Björn Paqualin, Jakob Beckman, Martin Luuk and Aron Levander. It was directed by Lisa James Larsson and Lisa Farzaneh.

In addition to Rheborg and Alström, the cast includes David Fukamachi Regnfors, Alida Moberg, Peter Kanerva, Björn Andrésen, Evelyn Mok, Roshi Hoss, Peter Eggers, Livia Millhagen, Niklas Engdahl, Bengt Braskered, Sanna Sundqvist, Jonas Malmsjö, Shiham Surafa and Joel Spira.

Johan Rheborg said: “We had a lot of fun during filming and it’s been fascinating to step into Agatha Christie’s world. I hope we’ve managed to present an original crime investigator and I really look forward to seeing how it all turned out.”
