, Harms has started preparations for Vik/Stubö, an 8 x 45-minute thriller series commissioned by Sweden’s TV4. Based on Norwegian author Anne Holt’s novels, it will be scripted by Peter Thorsboe and Mai Broström; production is scheduled to start in early 2015.

), it was an obvious next step for us to move into Sweden,” said Bose, who founded Miso with Allen in 2004 and in 2013 sold a majority stake of the company to worldwide operator FremantleMedia.

In Norway, Miso Film Norway’s chief, Brede Hovland, will later this month (24 April) start production for Acquitted, a 10 x 45-minute crime series written by Siv Rajendram Eliassen and Anna Bache-Wiig, which will be aired by Norwegian commercial broadcaster TV2 next year.

Starring Norwegian actor Nicolai Cleve Broch and Swedish actress Lena Endre, the €8.3 million series follows the return of a Norwegian businessman to his home town, where 20 years earlier he was accused, but acquitted, of having killed his high-school girlfriend.
