Fallet (The Case) is a Swedish comedy-drama television series, a spoof on the Nordic noir detective genre. It premiered 14 April 2017 on Swedish channel SVT1 before being acquired by Netflix.[2] It is a co-production of SVT, FLX, Film i Väst and DR, supported by Nordisk Film & TV Fond.[3] The series stars Lisa Henni as Sophie Borg and Adam Godley as DCI Tom Brown, two mediocre detectives who pair up to investigate a murder.[2][3]

In November 2017, Fallet was named best comedy drama at C21's International Drama Awards in London.[4] American cable network Showtime is developing a remake from Shameless writer Etan Frankel.[5]

Synopsis[edit]

Incompetent detectives, Sophie Borg from Stockholm and Tom Brown from St Ives, UK, are given one last chance to solve a case after the macabre murder of an Englishman in Borg's hometown of Norrbacka.[2] Norrbacka police chief Klas Wall, who is about to retire, is overjoyed at the excitement of the case.[6]
