NENT Group to adapt Max Anger novels

Nordic Entertainment (NENT) Group is adapting Martin Österdahl’s Max Anger novels as an original series for its Viaplay streaming service.

Adam Lundgren and Evin Ahmad co-star in the Swedish action thriller produced by Nice Drama in co-production with UK-based Twelve Town.

In the series, Max Anger has just been given a shot at peace when he falls for Pashie, a colleague at the Russia-focused think tank Vektor. When she suddenly goes missing in St. Petersburg, Max is desperate to find her. His efforts take him deep into a world of crime, corruption and international intrigue in Russia’s volatile and shrouded criminal underbelly.

The series is directed by Lisa Farzaneh and Jesper W. Nielsen, based on the screenplay by head-writer Mikael Newihl, co-written with Anders Sparring, Pauline Wolff and Jörgen Hjerdt.

The eight-part series will premiere exclusively across the Nordic region on Viaplay in late 2021.
