Malin Fors, 34, is the best detective on the Linköping police force. She is intuitive, empathetic and driven, almost to the point of psychological imbalance. Malin is an alcoholic and a difficult person, but relatable because she is a fighter. She is a mother to Tove and has problems in all of her relationships. She tries to escape her demons with alcohol, sex, work and physical exercise. She is unable to take responsibility for anything more than her current case and the tasks at hand at the moment.
Throughout the entire series, she will struggle with her cravings and fight to keep her job and her daughter Tove – because there won’t be anymore chances.
Linköping and its surrounding area, which is commonly referred to as
the Middle of Sweden, are the setting for our Malin Fors’ story. This is a place where many people have fallen by the wayside. Linköping is a divided city, where these conflicts can be found within each person. At the same time, the city is full of people who find love, and create families. The stage is set for grim, ominous stories about our time. Here and now.
