BECK – The Death Trap will premiere on C More on Christmas Day. BECK, who this year celebrates 25 years, continues to be a huge viewer success.
BECK – The Death Trap is the 47th Beck film, and after a raucous youth party in a residential area outside Stockholm, one of the party-goers is found dead. The body is found by Vilhelm (Valter Skarsgård), who is a police aspirant and on his first internship. It will be a very traumatic event for Vilhelm. Alex (Jennie Silfverhjelm), who is his mentor, assumes a heavy role in guiding and restraining Vilhelm in the upcoming investigation.
The films 47-50 are a direct sequel where we left the BECK team last and under the direction of Alex Beijer, the 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.
