”One of the best thrillers this year" - The Guardian
Erika Edman is the producer of seven seasons of the internationally successful crime series Maria Wern, and in this project, she is collaborating with BAFTA award-winning British producer Mia Jupp.
“There is a universal fascination for the dynamics of cults. As a complement to the well-established Scandi Noir genre, we want to create a mesmerizing thriller series that offers a new arena where the focus is on the intricate mechanisms of the human psyche, the consequences of hierarchies and group pressure, and the effects on people living under the spell of a powerful, charismatic leader. We love the complex main characters Sofia Bauman and Franz Oswald, and the tremendous success of Mariette´s books worldwide gives our project a great international platform”, say Erika Edman and Mia Jupp.
For her part, Mariette says, "It felt right from the very first meeting with Erika Edman and Mia Jupp. They are highly professional. And they really understand my purpose for the books and the importance of portraying the characters just right. I really look forward to continuing our collaboration.”
Mariette Lindstein’s books have been sold to the UK, Germany, Canada, Norway, Finland, Poland, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and Scotland.
Production is estimated to begin 2020.
