Viaplay Lines Up Psychological Thriller Veronika


Veronika, a psychological thriller with supernatural elements, is set to premiere exclusively on Viaplay in late 2023.

Alexandra Rapaport (Honour, Little Did I Know) and Tobias Santelmann (Those Who Kill, Point Break) headline the cast. Rapaport will play Veronika Gren, an introverted police officer and mother of two with a complex past and a tablet addiction.

Rapaport said: “I got my hands on this project more than five years ago, and I’ve been sold on it ever since. It’s a great script with a tone all of its own, and I’m grateful that Viaplay has seen the same thing. I’m so excited that my whole body is tingling.”

The eight-part series is created and scripted by Katja Juras and Anna Lindblom (Gåsmamman) and helmed by director Jonas Alexander Arnby (War of the Worlds).

Filippa Wallestam, Viaplay Group’s chief content officer, said: “Veronika is a fascinating character who gradually reveals multiple layers of her personality. Alexandra and Tobias both have a special touch that will make this unpredictable and compelling drama truly memorable. Veronika adds a fresh twist to the globally successful Nordic crime genre, which Viaplay continues to lead the way in nurturing and renewing.”
