THE LAWYER

Thriller Series / 10 x 1 Hour

A Viaplay Original and TV3 drama produced by SF Studios, THE LAWYER is based on a concept created by internationally bestselling author Jens Lapidus (The Easy Money trilogy), acclaimed screenwriter and creator of The Bridge, Hans Rosenfeldt, and bestselling author, scriptwriter and director Michael Hjorth (Sebastian Bergman), with Academy Award nominee Nicklas Wikström Nicastro and Joakim Hansson as producers.

Set in Malmo and Copenhagen, this fast paced, sharp and intelligent thriller centres on Frank Nordling (Alexander Karim), a young and exceptionally promising defence lawyer whose whole world unravels when he learns the truth behind his parents’ death. As children, Frank and his sister Sara (Malin Buska) witnessed their parents die in an explosion caused by a car bomb and, when he finds out who was responsible, he feels compelled to seek revenge… But, facing moral challenges and melodramatic conflicts in both his personal and professional life, Frank will be forced to use all his power and knowledge in his pursuit of justice, as he finds himself drawn into a dangerous game where the tiniest mistake could lead to his own death.
