Daniel Lind Lagerlöf (born 6 February 1969; missing since 6 October 2011) is a Swedish director, screenwriter and producer who is presumed dead.

Career[edit]

Lagerlöf began his work in television as an assistant, and directed his first film, Föreställningen (The Performance) in 1990. In 1997, he began working on Skärgårdsdoktorn, a highly successful drama series in Sweden and Norway. After it ended in 2000, Lagerlöf worked on several Beck-films, before returning to television. His last completed project was the three-part mini-series Bibliotekstjuven (the Library Thief), written by his wife Malin Lagerlöf.

Personal life[edit]

Lagerlöf met his wife, Malin Lagerlöf, in the early 1990s, and they married soon after. They had three children together. A screenwriter, Malin Lagerlöf often wrote projects for her husband to direct, including his final series, Bibliotekstjuven.

Disappearance[edit]

On 6 October 2011, Lagerlöf disappeared during preparations for the filming of Camilla Läckberg's Fjällbackamorden - Strandriddaren while scouting a planned filming location in the Tjurpannan nature reserve, leaving a wife and three children.[1]

It is believed Lagerlöf was caught on slippery rocks by large waves sweeping the area and pulled out to sea near the steep cliffs outside Tanumshede in Bohuslän.[2] There were no witnesses to what actually happened. As of 2016 no remains have been found, and Lagerlöf is presumed deceased.[3][4][5]
