Snabba Cash is a 2021 Swedish streaming television series written by Jens Lapidus and Oskar Söderlund (screenwriter) and directed by Jesper Ganslandt [sv].[1][2] It is based on Lapidus' Stockholm Noir novel trilogy, the first of which was adapted into three films: Easy Money (2010), Easy Money II: Hard to Kill (2012), and Easy Money III: Life Deluxe (2013). The series takes place in Stockholm, ten years after the film trilogy.[1]

In June 2021, a second season was announced and was released in September 2022.[3]


In Season 1, Leya (Evin Ahmad), a single mother of Middle Eastern ancestry, is desperate for startup funding for an artificial intelligence firm she founded. Leya, like many others in the mostly immigrant housing developments where she resides, has few alternatives. She believes her only option is to borrow money from her drug-dealing brother-in-law Ravy (Dada Fungula Bozela), which jeopardises her future when he becomes a partner in her company.[4]

Season 2 takes place one year later. Leya is pushing her startup towards a public offering while Ravy battles a ruthless new competitor for control of the drug trade. Leya's connections with the underworld continue to threaten her successful business career.[5]

In his review for Wall Street Journal John Anderson describe the series as The show's insular worlds collide, revealing complex relationships and impending doom. Once established, the series becomes engrossing, exploring desperation's influence on actions.[7] New York Times Tobias Grey praised the show's creator, Oskar Soderlund, for highlighting the extreme versions of capitalism represented in these worlds, as how's adaptation of Jens Lapidus's novels modernizes crime in Stockholm, emphasizing the growth of organized crime and its brutality.[8]
