Hollywood Targets New Swedish Trilogy
The fascination with Scandinavian storytelling, trigged by Stieg Larsson’s Swedish Millennium trilogy, is not going away anytime soon. Now, Hollywood has grabbed up book trilogy The Crow Girl.
Production company Tomorrow Studios has grabbed up the rights to the Swedish novels, not yet published in the US, to be developed as a TV series.
Three women are at the center of the trilogy. One is a cop who is investigating the killings of abused children, another is a psychotherapist, who specialises in child abuse cases, and the third woman is a patient of the psychotherapist.
The Crow Girl is written by Eril Axl Sund, which is actually the pen name for Swedish authors Jurker Eriksson and Hakan Sundquist. Out of the countless novels that explore the human psyche, critics have described their books as “the best in the genre.”
Marty Adelstein, the CEO of Tomorrow Studios will executive produce the series, along with president Becky Clements and Michael London. The project is said to be catching the attention of some top actresses, but no names have been officially released to date.
