OLA RAPACE TO STAR IN SWEDISH POLICE SERIES

Olov Svedelid's iconic police character Roland Hassel is set to return in a new original series on Viaplay and TV3. The lead role will be played by Swedish star Ola Rapace who portrayed Patrice in the 2012 James Bond film Skyfall (2012).

Commenting on the news, Ola Rapace said: "Roland Hassel is a great character and I look forward to a modern, Swedish police series that want nothing more than to accompany the Friday drink."

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:
Roland Hassel är tillbaka i en ny originalserie på Viaplay och TV3. Huvudrollen spelas av svenska storstjärnan Ola Rapace som slog igenom med Tusenbröder. Hassel är baserad på författaren Olov Svedelids ikoniska poliskaraktär och kommer att sändas på Viaplay och TV3 med start 2017.

Hassel är historien om kriminalpolisen Roland Hassels blåljusfärgade vardag i Stockholms nattsvarta kriminella värld. Hassel har tidigare gjorts både som långfilm och tv-serie på SVT (1986-1992), men kommer nu tillbaka som ny originalserie på Viaplay och TV3 med Ola Rapace i huvudrollen.

När Roland Hassels chef och mentor blir brutalt mördad på öppen gata dras Hassel allt djupare in i en skoningslös värld av makt, pengar och korruption, en gråzon där inget är vad det synes vara och allt verkar hänga samman. Ju närmare sanningen Hassel kommer, desto mer utsatt blir hans familj. Men det finns en utväg för Hassel –om han är beredd att korsa alla moraliska gränser.

- Kriminaldrama fungerar väldigt bra på TV3 och vi är stolta att kunna presentera en ny kriminalserie med en så pass känd förlaga. Vi är även otroligt glada att Ola tackat ja till att gestalta denna legendariska snut i ett samtida Stockholm. Utmaningarna för polisen ser ju annorlunda ut idag och därför har MTG och Nice lagt ner mycket arbete på att hitta ett modernt uttryck i en redan etablerad karaktär, säger Karin Stjärne, programdirektör MTG Sverige.

TV3 och Viaplay har flera aktuella samproduktioner. Andra säsongen av Black Widows kommer våren 2017 och redan i höst har thrillerserien Svartsjön premiär. Inspelningen av Hassel börjar senare i år med premiär på Viaplay hösten 2017 och visas därefter på TV3.

- Vi har precis gjort en succélansering av vår första originalserie Swedish Dicks och är minst lika spända på våra kommande originalproduktioner. Att vi nu gör en reboot av ikoniska Hassel med Ola Rapace i huvudrollen känns fantastiskt roligt, Jonas Karlén, VD Viaplay.

Hassel produceras av Nice Drama som bland annat ligger bakom succéer som Hundraåringen som klev ut genom fönstret och försvann (2013) och Tjockare än vatten (2014-2016). Serien är skapad av Henrik Jansson-Schweizer och Morgan Jensen som tillsammans med författarna Björn Paqualin och Charlotte Lesche skrivit manus. Samproducent och internationell försäljningsagent är Beta Film.

- Jag är extremt glad att vi fått förtroendet att återuppta berättelsen om Roland Hassel. Precis som i Svedelids ursprungliga vision kommer serien att reflektera samtida händelser i det allt hårdare samhällsklimatet. Ola är dessutom helt perfekt som Hassel, säger Henrik Jansson-Schweizer.

Puck is invited by his university tutor to celebrate Midsummer at his solitary place on an island in Lake Skoga, along with a group of friends, including Einar Bure.

But when Puck and Einar, who know each other from before, have been out and about, Puck finds one of the female guests murdered. Einar calls his friend Christer Wijk, a detective professionally, but when he arrives to the crime scene the corpse is gone without a trace.

12 APRIL 2012
OLA RAPACE ON SKYFALL: "I DO MY OWN STUNTS"

Ola Rapace is the latest Swedish actor who invests in a career overseas. In the upcoming James Bond film Skyfall (2012), he plays Patrice (which FSWL was the first one to reveal on February 29), a villain who will do his best to kill agent 007.

Our good friends at MovieZine.com met up with Rapace during the filming in Adana in south-eastern Turkey.

How did you end up in a James Bond film?
[Ola Rapace:] I was asked to come and do a screen test. I know that director Sam Mendes had seen Lukas Moodysson's "Together", but I am surprised that he remembers me from it. I met him when I did my audition. I tested with a stunt team because they wanted to see what I could do physically. It was tough.

Do you have a foreign agent who is looking after roles for you?
[OP:] I have a few agents, but I'm not interested in how their job is done. Just give me good roles.

Yes, how does it feel to play the villain in a major international film?
[OP:] It's a dream come true, I get to come and play on a giant playground. I’m driving a motorcycle, shooting with machine guns, and everyone is nice and takes care of me. I really feel like one of the stunt guys, and I make so much of my own stunts as I get permission to. And I like to drive fast. I enjoy every second of it.

Who is ‘Patrice’?
[OP:] He is a man who does not speak so much. He enjoys the violence and he loves to be in control. He likes to play with violence, he likes to chase people. It's quite liberating to play a villain. He does not pretend to be nice, he just do his job. He is practical and shows no emotions.

How do he and Bond fight?
[OP:] Bond is chasing me, first on a motorbike and then we jump down on the roof of a train and continue to fight there. We're shooting parts of that here in Adana, and then we film more in Istanbul. It is supposed to look as if everything is set in Istanbul.

Are you a Bond fan?
[OP:] No, I have never been into Bond. I think the ones with Daniel Craig are great, and I've seen some of the early ones although I do not remember much of those.

How does it feel to go from filming in Sweden to something of this size?
[OP:] Surreal. By just looking around I realized it costs millions. I did not think there was so much money in circulation.

It is often referred to as Swedish actor who starts a foreign career gets to play bad guys. Max von Sydow did it once, Mikael Nyqvist does it in the latest "Mission: Impossible" film. Any comment?
[OP:] It's a good way to get into it. And right now they're very excited about Swedish actors and Swedish screenplays. They are talking about the "Swedish wave", and rightfully so. One can see that people are interested in anything that comes from Sweden. Once you say you are Swedish you notice an increased interest.

What would you rather do?
[OP:] I would love to make a film with Gary Oldman, that would be fantastic, and I would like to do more international films, but it’s not a purpose of my own. I'm not a child anymore.

Surrealist. I look around and realize how many millions it will cost. I did not think there was so much money in circulation.
