Bäckström (Acorn TV Exclusive, Foreign Language, Swedish w/English subtitles) | Trailer | Screeners

Based on Leif GW Persson's popular Swedish crime novels, this series centers around detective Evert Bäckström (Kjell Bergqvist) - a rock star among cops who is famous for having solved 99% of all cases he has taken on. Starring as a TV expert doesn't help his ego or reputation -he thinks he's a genius - and he is, at solving crimes. When a woman's skull is found, it seems she was murdered recently, but DNA points to her death in the 2004 tsunami. Prosecutor Hanna Hwass (Livia Millhagen) believes it's a mistake, but Bäckström sees a case only he can solve: a woman who has died twice. (6 EPS, 2020)
