With the greatest of pleasures, I inform you that this year Netflix is going to adapt M. T. Edvardsson's bestselling domestic thriller A Nearly Normal Family into television series in 2023 (date of release yet to be fixed). Originally published in Sweden, the book has sold 550 000 copies across 35 territories worldwide and made Edvardsson's name known to Scandinavian crime fiction aficionados around the globe. In the leading roles of the Swedish limited drama thriller series are Alexandra Karlsson, Lo Kauppi, and Björn Bengtsson. The author will also be the executive producer of the show. Here is what he had to say about the project: “I’m overwhelmed! It is a dream come true to see my book come to life as a Netflix series. The script is very strong and Per Hanefjord is a fantastic director who’s passionate about the story. It has been important to me that it is filmed in Lund, where the book takes place. I also hope that some of the young, incredibly talented actors will get their breakthrough in this series.”. The story revolves around an affluent Swedish family residing in a neighborhood of Lund whose quiet existence will be turned upside down when the 19-year-old daughter, Stella, gets accused of murder. The novel was an enticing page-turner and the participation of the author in the production promises an above average Scandi crime drama. I will update this post when an official release date is announced.
