Agatha Christie Website Announces New Screen Production
« on: January 11, 2021, 02:24:29 am »
I'm very excited about this: https://www.agathachristie.com/news/2020/introducing-agatha-christies-sven-hjerson?utm_source=Agatha+Christie+Newsletter+Master+List&utm_campaign=95ccc3ddb7-Agatha_Christie_Newsletter_January_2021&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_e436c51fda-95ccc3ddb7-27816085

"There have been countless adaptations of Agatha Christie’s novels and stories over the years, but now for the first time we have an entirely new production set within the fictional universe created by the Queen of Crime. Never before has Sven Hjerson, the fictional detective of Agatha Christie’s fictional writer Ariadne Oliver, been committed to the screen; but now, for the first time, a production will bring this meta adaptation to life. Agatha Christie’s Sven Hjerson is a thrilling, playful whodunnit with a contemporary twist.

Ariadne Oliver is a mystery crime writer who appears in a number of Agatha Christie novels, and who, according to Agatha Christie, bears certain similarities to herself. Ariadne has her own master detective: Sven Hjerson who loves crudités, cold winter baths and solving murder mysteries. In this new series Sven Hjerson is played by none other than Johan Rheborg.

The TV series began shooting in Åland on December 8th. It comprises four classic whodunnit murder cases and will be broadcast as a TV series in Sweden and Germany in autumn 2021."
