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.
