Four new BECK films in production

In Production Tv Series

The shooting of four new Beck films, number 47-50, started recently. Beck, who this year celebrates 25 years, continues to be a huge viewer success.

In the upcoming films, Martin Beck wrestles not only with increasingly challenging murder cases but also internal strife. At the same time, he is affected on a more personal level when his grandson Vilhelm Beck ends up in the middle of the action.

The films 47-50 are a direct sequel where we left the Beck team last and under the direction of Alex Beijer, the Beck team is the same; Oskar, Jenny, Ayda, Steinar and Josef. The police unit works closely and efficiently together, but there are clouds of unrest. Has Alex come to terms with her past? Does Josef fit into the group? Can Steinar contribute when they need him the most? And the newly appointed Säpo chief Klas Fredén continues to appear where he is not supposed to and gets involved in investigations that he has nothing to do with.
