Netflix has announced that international best-selling thriller novel, “Störst av Allt” (“Quicksand”), will be the next series from head writer of The Bridge, Camilla Ahlgren. The digital streaming service is partnering with production company FLX (“Bonusfamiljen/The Bonus Family” and “The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared”) to bring its first Swedish original series to Netflix members globally.
“Störst av Allt” (“Quicksand”) is based on the best-selling novel by Malin Persson Giolito which has been published in 26 countries and was voted Nordic Crime Novel of the year in 2016. When a mass shooting takes place at a prep school in Stockholm’s wealthiest suburb, a normal high school student, Maja Norberg, finds herself on trial for murder. When the events of that tragic day are revealed, so too are the private details about her relationship with Sebastian Fagerman and his dysfunctional family.
