Discover Fjällbacka – the new crime capital of Sweden
When the phrase “Fjällbacka is paradise on earth” is uttered, we know that a tingle of the spine will immediately follow. What should be an incongruous reaction is not the case when it comes to the context of Nordic Noir. Nothing is what is seems and soon the truth will out. The international best-selling novels from Camilla Läckberg ‘s crime fiction franchise are coming out to buy from Nordic Noir & Beyond in six feature-length adaptations, on DVD from Monday 6th June.
The Fjällbacka Murders stars Claudia Galli as crime novelist Erica Falck who is lured back to her Swedish hometown – the once peaceful fishing village Fjällbacka. Along with her husband Patrick Hedström (Richard Ulfsäter) and three children, Erica realises that the place she once knew is now rife with festering feuds and murderous M.O.’s about to be unleashed.
The six episodes include:
The Hidden Child– While Erica mourns the death of her parents, she doesn’t expect to be faced with the revelation that she has a long-lost brother. However, the reunion is far from a happy one as Erica learns that her suspicious sibling has secrets from his past in Nazi Germany. 1864’s Jakob Oftebro co-stars.
The Eye of the Beholder– Erica’s sister is caught up in a game of deception when an antique show comes to Fjällbacka to film one of its roadshows.

Featuring the Easy Money trilogy and Arne Dahl star Matias Varela.
Friends for Life– For her next book, Erica decides to base her new mystery narrative on the disappearance of her childhood friend that remains unsolved. However, it becomes clear that her curiosity has unearthed unwanted questions someone doesn’t want answered.
The Sea Gives, the Sea Takes– Stigge, renowned photographer, turns up dead in his studio and Erica’s intrigue is sparked. What happened and why would anyone want to hurt an elderly resident of Fjällbacka. Looks can be deceiving as even Erica’s mother-in-law was a victim of Stigge’s blackmail.
The Coast rider – After a storm hits the town, a coast guard makes a gruesome discovery. She is told that the bodies of the dead scuba divers are the unfortunate accident from the raging weather.
