Mörkt hjärta The Dark Heart

The Dark Heart is an intense psychological thriller about an old family feud and forbidden love that leads to a tragedy. The series is based on the bestselling non-fiction title The Dark Heart – A true Story of Greed, Murder, and an Unlikely Investigation by Swedish crime reporter Joakim Palmkvist, which delves into a real-world murder case that left a small rural community of Småland in shock in 2012. The twist in the story is that the investigation was led by a Missing People volunteer who started to research the case and eventually solved the high-profile murder of local farmer Göran Lundblad.
