Highly successful Swedish drama Honour, which was recently renewed for a second season, premiered on Viaplay in August to record-breaking viewing figures. It follows four talented female lawyers fighting for justice for those who need it most: women who are weak, abused, and ignored by the rest of society. Despite their success, these women have their own dark secret, one that could threaten everything that they've worked so hard to build. Based on an idea by Sofia Helin the series was developed together with Alexandra Rapaport, Julia Dufvenius and Anja Lundqvist who also star. The series is produced by Stockholm-based production company Bigster (co-headed by Rapaport).

Coming from Sweden as well is the gripping thriller Conspirancy of Silence produced by Brain Academy. Directed by Charlotte Brändström, known around the world for her work on acclaimed series such as Outlander, the series explores the murky world of the international arms trade. Starring Jens Hultén as a former weapons dealer forced into exile, who returns to Sweden on a quest for vengeance, the story highlights both the shattered personal lives that the weapons business leaves in its wake, and the moral hypocrisy that allows the trade to flourish. The series premiered on Viaplay in September 2018.

Award-winning series Invisible Heroes follows the remarkable exploits of Finnish diplomat Tapani Brotherus who, working in secret, helped secure asylum in Europe for more than 2 000 Chilean citizens whose lives were under threat following General Pinochet’s military coup in 1973. The series was commissioned in a unique collaboration between Finnish broadcaster YLE and Chilevisión with a successful run in Finland this spring and an upcoming launch this fall in Chile. Recently, the drama was awarded the Mini-Series Silver Bird Prize at this year’s Seoul Drama Awards as well as the Special Jury Award at the Festival de la Fiction in La Rochelle. Furthermore, Invisible Heroes was nominated for the Venice TV Awards as Best TV Series and was part of the lineup of the Serial Killer Festival in Brno, the Serielizados Fest in Barcelona and the Göteborg Film Festival.
