Leif G. W. Persson's Crime Novel Detective to be Developed into Television Series

Telemystery: Mystery and Suspense on Television

20th Century Fox has acquired the rights to Swedish crime novelist Leif G. W. Persson's mysteries featuring Stockholm police officer Evert Backstrom, with the intent to develop a television series based on the character.

Two books have been published to date, Linda … som i Lindamordet (Linda ... as in Linda's Murder) in 2005 and Den som dödar draken (He Who Kills the Dragon) in 2008, neither of which have been translated (to our knowledge) into English.

The author describes Backstrom as "young, bold and primitive, but if necessary both cunning and unforgiving."

The studio hopes to have the series ready for next year's fall season.
