Netflix has revealed the official trailer for Snabba Cash, launching on the streaming service on April 7, 2021. The Swedish-language reboot is set in Stockholm ten years after the events depicted in the film trilogy.
In the center of the story is Leya, a young single mom trying to make it within the startup- scene. It is a buzzing environment where the craving for status and money is stronger than ever and Leya is determined to make it, no matter what.
The entrepreneurial jet set as well as the criminal world is more brutal, chaotic and ruthless than ever. When these two worlds collide, loyalty, friendships and business partners will all be tested in the never-ending quest for easy money.
Consisting of six episodes, Snabba Cash stars Evin Ahmad, Alexander Abdallah, Ali Alarik, Olle Sarri, Dada Fungula Bozela, and Jozef Wojciechowicz (Z.E).
The series comes from screenwriter Oskar Söderlund and bestselling author Jens Lapidus.
“I have been waiting for an opportunity to continue with Snabba Cash. The stories are still epic but also depict our time in an unfiltered light. It will be amazing”, said Lapidus previously.
The series is produced by SF Studios, the original producer of the hugely successful and critically-acclaimed film trilogy also known as Easy Money, set in the gritty criminal underground of Stockholm.
Tesha Crawford, Director International Originals Northern Europe, said: ”We are happy to announce this new Swedish series and to bring the world from these much loved movies back to life in a fresh and exciting way. To do this, we are fortunate to work with some amazing Swedish creatives.
“We are excited about working with Oskar and Jens and their vision for this new chapter of Snabba Cash. With SF Studios onboard we also have an incredibly strong local partner.”
Oskar Söderlund, the acclaimed screenwriter behind The Fat and the Angry (Ettor och nollor) and Greyzone, developed the series together with Lapidus, who’s also serving as the executive producer. Lapidus is a Swedish criminal defense lawyer and internationally-bestselling author with 2.2 million books sold in Sweden alone.
The Stockholm Noir trilogy (buy at Amazon) are published in 30 languages and the first book, Snabba Cash, was successfully adapted into three feature films. The Netflix series is produced by Nicklas Wikström Nicastro, whose feature film, A Man Called Ove, was the third-highest grossing film in Swedish history and nominated for two Oscars at the Academy Awards 2017.
