Viaplay names ‘Veronika’ with Alexandra Rapaport as latest Original

  • Psychological thriller with a paranormal flavour stars Alexandra Rapaport (‘Honour’) and Tobias Santelmann (‘Those Who Kill’; ‘Point Break’)
  • ‘Veronika’ directed by triple Cannes Film Festival-nominee Jonas Alexander Arnby
  • Viaplay to premiere at least 70 Originals in 2022

Nordic superstars Alexandra Rapaport (‘Honour’; ‘Little Did I Know’) and Tobias Santelmann (‘Those Who Kill’; ‘Point Break’) will headline the Viaplay Original ‘Veronika’, an innovative psychological thriller with supernatural elements. Set to premiere exclusively on Viaplay in late 2023, the eight-part series is created and scripted by Katja Juras and Anna Lindblom (‘Gåsmamman’) and helmed by acclaimed director Jonas Alexander Arnby (‘War of the Worlds’), the recipient of three nominations at the Cannes Film Festival for ‘When Animals Dream’.

Veronika Gren (Alexandra Rapaport) is an introverted police officer and mother of two with a complex past and a tablet addiction. When she sees a dead boy standing in a hospital parking lot, Veronika initially questions her own sanity. But further visions make her realise that she is face to face with victims of unsolved crimes – and that her past holds the key to bringing them justice and catching a killer still on the loose.

Alexandra Rapaport: “I got my hands on this project more than five years ago, and Ive been sold on it ever since. Its a great script with a tone all of its own, and Im grateful that Viaplay have seen the same thing. Im so excited that my whole body is tingling.”

Sarah Rhodin (Mirakel’) and Eddie Eriksson Dominguez (Diorama’) also appear in the series, which has recently started filming in Stockholm.

Filippa Wallestam, Viaplay Group Chief Content Officer: “Veronika is a fascinating character who gradually reveals multiple layers of her personality. Alexandra and Tobias both have a special touch that will make this unpredictable and compelling drama truly memorable. ‘Veronika’ adds a fresh twist to the globally successful Nordic crime genre, which Viaplay continues to lead the way in nurturing and renewing.”

‘Veronika’ is produced by Calle Jansson and Mathias Gruffman at Bigster, and executive produced for Viaplay by Helena Larand. Viaplay Content Distribution handles global sales.
