Huss will be coproduced by NENT, ZDF, the pubcaster’s commercial arm ZDF Enterprises (ZDFE) and Kanal 5. It will premiere across the Nordics on NENT’s Viaplay streaming service.

The plot centres on Katarina Huss, played by Karin Franz Körlof, who has just graduated from Sweden’s police academy and must learn fast as she starts work on the streets of Gothenburg.

Inspired by Helene Tursten’s bestselling crime novels, Huss will co-star Kardo Razzazi, Filip Berg and Anders Berg. The series is produced by Daniel Gylling (Wallander) at Yellow Bird and directed by Jörgen Bergmark (Grey Zone).

Filming is underway in Gothenburg, and the production has received financial support from Vastra Götalandsregionens Produktionsrabbatter (VGPR). ZDFE will handle the international distribution.

Filippa Wallestam, NENT Group chief content officer, said: “Huss is an intense human drama that paints a compelling picture of a city, a police force and an ambitious young officer trying to make her way while doing the right thing. Gothenburg is Karin Franz Körlof’s hometown and she brings a very personal touch to this gritty and relevant series.”
