The Scandi festival offers an exclusive first-look at the new Swedish supernatural series
Fans of Nordic Noir will no doubt be eager to meet iconic actresses of the popular genre – The Killing’s Sofie Gråbøl and The Bridge’s Sofia Helin. However, along with the well-regarded on-screen detectives flocking to the Troxy theatre this weekend, a refreshing new treat is in store for our guests. Proving that the Nordic Noir cycle is still as prolific as ever, the latest Swedish mystery series Jordskott is one of the premiere events to look forward to.
Nordicana 2015 guests will get the chance to see the first episode of the highly anticipated series ahead of being aired on ITV Encore. The series begins with detective Eva Thörnblad who returns to her hometown and unearths a hidden mystery linked to the disappearance of her daughter seven years earlier deep in the sinister town of Silverhöjd. Following this special screening, star of the show Moa Gammel – who recently enthralled us with a blistering central performance in the gangster film Tommy (2014) opposite Ola Rapace – will be discussing her haunting experience as Eva Thörnblad in Jordskott in a candid audience Q&A.
Audiences will find out more about the clandestine series with a series of in-depth conversations to compliment the Nordic Noir celebrations. On Saturday 6th June Wendy Mitchell, programme manager for the British Council, will be moderating the tête-à-tête and delving deeper into the mystery of the Silverhöjd forest. Gammel will also be joined by series creator and co-director Henrik Björn, producers Filip Hammarstrom and Johan Rudolphie. While on Sunday 7th June, writer and Empire magazine contributor Damon Wise will be chatting to Gammel and producers Filip Hammarstrom and Johan Rudolphie. Moa Gammel will also be available in the White Room for signings on both days for burgeoning fans to get up close and personal with the new face of Scandi-crime.
Jordskott will begin airing on ITV Encore on 10 June 2015
