Hans Rosenfeldt (b. 1964) is the creator of the incredibly successful TV-series The Bridge and Marcella as well as the co-author of the No. 1 internationally bestselling Sebastian Bergman series, together with Michael Hjorth.
Cry Wolf is Rosenfeldt’s first novel under his own name and the beginning of a series – the Haparanda series – that promises to be yet another milestone in Scandinavian crime fiction.
Hans Rosenfeldt’s acclaimed first solo novel, Cry Wolf, will be adapted for the small-screen and it is now official that Rosenfeldt will also pen the script for the anticipated series. He has teamed up with co-writer Camilla Ahlgren for the project and this marks the first time the pair has worked together since the mega-hit show The Bridge.
Cry Wolf follows the crime investigations undertaken by Hannah Wester, a middle-aged policewoman in the Swedish remote northern town of Haparanda, on the border with Finland. When human remains are found in the stomach of a dead wolf, Wester knows that this summer will be unlike any other. The remains are soon linked to a bloody drug deal across the border in Finland. But how did the victim end up in the forest outside of Haparanda? And where have the drugs and the money gone?
Cry Wolf will be produced by Nordic Drama Queens for C More and TV4. The series is slated to begin filming in 2023.
Cry Wolf, Hans Rosenfeldt’s first novel under his own name and the first installment in the Haparanda series, debuts on US trade magazine Publishers Weekly’s bestseller list this week at No. 13.
It’s now official that Hans Rosenfeldt’s When Crying Wolf has sold more than 100.000 copies in Sweden alone. For this achievement, Hans received the “Norstedtaren” – a trophy from his publishing house Norstedts.
