Kung Liljekonvalje av Dungen - starring Ola Rapace from Skyfall (2012) - premieres on DVD and Blu-ray.

Kung Liljekonvalje av Dungen is based on Maria Lang's book about Inspector Christer Wijk (Ola Rapace), Puck and Einar Bure.

Plot:
The day before the wedding, the bride Anneli walks into a flower shop to approve her bouquet, and from there she disappears without a trace ... until she is found murdered with a bouquet of lilies-of-the-valley in the hand. Puck (Tuva Novotny) and her future husband Eje Bure (Linus Wahlgren) investigate the murder mystery along with Inspector Christer Wijk (Ola Rapace), and dark secrets are revealed in the idyllic small town Skoga, where everyone seems to have something to hide. The story takes place in a deliciously beautiful 1950s.

The second film in a series of six stand-alone thrillers. Other films of the series: Mördaren ljuger inte ensam, Inte flera mord, Rosor, kyssar och döden, Farliga drömmar and Tragedi på en lantkyrkogård.

About OLA RAPACE:
Ola Rapace is trained at the Theatre Academy in Gothenburg between 1995 and 1999. For several years, during his time at the drama school, Ola worked at the Backa Theatre and at the Uppsala City Theatre. At the Stockholm City Theatre he recently appeared in ”Kontakt med Gud" (2010), directed by Mattias Andersson, and in "Angels in America 1-11" (2011) directed by Eva Dahlman.

In 1999, he was critically acclaimed for his performance in Lukas Moodysson's blockbuster "Together". But it was as Hoffa, in the series ”Tusenbröder” and ”Tusenbröder 2” directed by Erik Leo Borg, that Ola got his definitive breakthrough as an actor. The series was aired during a third season and was also filmed in the feature film "Tusenbröder – Återkomsten" (2006). Between 2005 and 2006, he played Stefan Lindman in thirteen of the Swedish Wallander films, including the theatrical releases "Before the Frost" (2004), "Mastermind" (2005) and "The Secret" (2006). On television, we have also seen Ola in ”Sjätte dagen” (1999), ”Anna Phil” (2007-2008), ”Selma” (2008), ”Stockholm-Båstad” (2011), and Daniel Alfredson's "Odjuret" (2012).

Other movies include: ”Hus i helvete” (2001), ”Allt om min buske” (2006), Pernilla August's "Svinalängorna" (2010) and Anders Grönros' "I miss you" (2011) and more recently, the Bond film Skyfall (2012).
