Händelser vid vatten

Händelser vid vatten Blackwater

On a Midsummer’s night in 1973, two tourists are found murdered in a tent, far up in the mountains of Northern Sweden, near the small town of Blackwater. An incident that intersects the lives of three random people, intertwining their destinies for better and for worse. And which, after years of repression, is brought back to life, interfering with the lives they now lead.

  • Perhaps the best Swedish TV series of the year. /…/ A fascinating and strong portrayal that tells the story about people and feelings and what lies beneath the surface.


    Kulturbloggen, Sweden

  • “SVT’s intense and fantastic small town thriller Blackwater is top class. /…/ Worth every minute.”


    DN, Sweden

  • A low-key, beautiful portrait of man.


    Moviezine, Sweden

  • “Even though we’re only two weeks into the new year, it could very well be the best Swedish TV series of 2023.”


    SVT Nyheter, Sweden

  • The TV version of Blackwater is something really special.


    Expressen, Sweden

  • “The first TV home run of the year came early. Blackwater is an almost perfect dramatization of Kerstin Ekman’s novel from 1993.”


    SvD, Sweden

  • An outstanding SVT series. /…/ So good that I wish it was still unwatched.
