First Look

FIRST LOOK: Swedish star Alexandra Rapaport takes the title role in Veronika, a crime series with a supernatural edge coming to SkyShowtime in March.

Rapaport (Gåsmamman, Honour) plays police officer Veronika Gren, a mother-of-two who struggles with her complicated family life and a secret pill addiction. When strange things start to happen and a deceased boy appears before her, Veronika thinks she’s lost her mind. Reluctantly, Veronika is forced to accept that the boy may not be an illusion.

Veronika then finds herself in a murder investigation that goes deeper than anyone in town would like to believe after learning about the murder of two teenage girls. She must uncover the truth and find the connection between the cases to prevent the killer from striking again. But will anyone believe her?

The cast also includes Tobias Santelmann (Exit, The Arctic Convoy) as Veronika’s husband Tomas, Olle Sarri (Snabba Cash, Together 99) as Tommy, Isac Calmroth​ (Allt som blir kvar, Ondskan) as Alexander​ and Arvin Kananian​ (Hålla Samman, Triangle of Sadness) as Nassir. Sarah Rhodin (Mirakel), Wilma Lidén (Karusell) and Eddie Eriksson Dominguez (Diorama) also appear.

The eight-part series is created and scripted by Katja Juras and Anna Lindblom (Gåsmamman) and directed by Jonas Alexander Arnby (War of the Worlds). Veronika was shot on location in Sweden in Dannemora, Gimo and Österbybruk.

It is produced by Calle Jansson and Mathias Gruffman at Bigster, alongside Alexandra Rapaport as executive producer.

SkyShowtime is currently available in 22 markets across Europe, including Albania, Andorra, Bulgaria, Bosnia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Hungary, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Spain, Slovakia, Slovenia and Sweden.
