Tjuvarnas jul (The Thieves' Christmas) was the 2011 SVT Christmas calendar broadcast from 1–24 December by Sveriges Television. The plot focuses on a thief named Kurre and his little daughter Charlie. It has a style reminiscent of Charles Dickens's stories.


The series is set in Stockholm during the 19th century.[1] Kurre feeds entirely on stealing. He is involved in a gang of thieves led by the evil old woman Madame Bofvén. He lives alone in a loft, until a little girl named Ing-Britt (later renamed Charlie by Madame Bofvén) who is his daughter shows up outside his door. During the series, they approach each other as father and daughter, while Madame Bofvén planning to rob the big department store and the police seek diligently after the thieves. As if that were not enough the store owner seems to have an illicit secret.



A freestanding feature-length film is in production to premiere in late 2014.
