(Crime/suspense, 4×88 min./8×44 min.) A modern, playful whodunit with a twinkle in the eye. We follow Agatha Christie’s character Sven Hjerson (Johan Rheborg) in a contemporary Nordic setting of Stockholm and the islands of Åland, as he solves murder mysteries together with TV producer Klara Sandberg (Hanna Alström).
Distributor: ZDF Enterprises
Pitch Perfect: Agatha Christie’s Sven Hjerson is the world’s first ever official Agatha Christie character spin-off. There have been countless adaptations of Agatha Christie’s novels and stories over the years, but here for the first time we have an entirely new production set within the fictional universe created by the mistress of suspense. Hjerson is the fictional detective of Christie’s fictional author Ariadne Oliver—who Christie herself admitted contained a ‘strong dash’ of herself. MIPTV’s MIPDrama sidebar has awarded Agatha Christie’s Sven Hjerson with the coveted MIPDrama Buyers’ Coup de Cœur, the most prestigious prize at the market.
