A murder turns everything upside down in the trailer of the brand new Swedish thriller series A perfectly normal family (2023). The intense crime drama about an ‘almost normal family’ can be streamed on Netflix from this month.
Not so normal after all
In the series we meet Stella, a nineteen-year-old girl who lives with her family in a suburb of the Swedish city of Lund. The usually normal life of this Sandell family is completely turned upside down when Stella is suddenly accused of murder and taken into custody. What exactly happened? And do the family members know each other as well as they currently think?
Based on a bestseller
The leading roles in En helt vanlig familj (A Nearly Normal Family) are played by newcomer Alexandra Tyrefors (Stella), Lo Kauppi, The Björn Bengtsson (known from The Last Kingdom (2015–2022)), Christian Fandango Sundgren, Melisa Ferhatovic and Håkan Bengtsson. Director Per Hanefjord previously shot the crime series Rig 45 (2018– ) on his behalf. The book on which the makers based themselves became a bestseller in and outside Sweden.
En helt vanlig familj consists of six episodes, starting from 24 november can be streamed. You can also add the Netflix series to your watchlist.
