Malin Lagerlöf

    Malin Lagerlöf (b.1968) is the creator and writer of the TV series Farang (2017) but began her career writing for the stage, and has crafted more than a dozen plays for theaters around Sweden. Lagerlöf’s career in film and TV took off in 1999 when she wrote the feature film Vägen Ut, which was nominated for a Guldbagge at the 1999 Official Swedish Film Awards in the category ‘Best screenplay’. The success was quickly followed by the popular feature films Hans och Hennes (2001) and Miffo (2003). Known for her diversity as a writer, Lagerlöf easily moves between writing for the stage, feature film, and TV series such as Wallander (2013) and the acclaimed Bibliotekstjuven (2011), nominated for a 2011 Kristallen Award in the category ‘Best Drama Series’.
