Acorn TV Sets US Premiere of Swedish Detective Drama on Monday, April 26
Based on Leif GW Persson's Bestselling Novel, Kan man dö två gånger? (Can You Die Twice?)
Evert Bäckström (Kjell Bergqvistist, The Wedding Photographer, A Summer Tale) is a respected detective, famed for having an unparalleled world record for solving murder cases. But when a bullet-ridden skull is found in the Swedish archipelago, DNA results confirm it belongs to a victim of Thailand's 2004 tsunami. Bäckström is faced with an inexplicable mystery that even he could not have imagined: Can you die twice? A thrillingly dark noir, Bäckström is based on the novel Kan man dö två gånger? (Can You Die Twice?) by Leif GW Persson, whose books also inspired the US TV series Backstrom starring Rainn Wilson as the title character.
Streaming in the US and Canada exclusively on Acorn TV, Bäckström premieres Monday, April 26.
