Unwanted by Kristina Ohlsson

Three of Swedish crime novelist Kristina Ohlsson's "Fredrika Bergman" mysteries will be adapted for television. Nice Drama has optioned the books and will produce the 90-minute adaptations.

The first of these titles, Askungar, was published in 2009. It introduced the investigative analyst, who assists the Swedish police solve crimes. An English translation, Unwanted, was published earlier this year by Atria.

"Kristina Ohlsson has written three brilliant books, with complex and credible characters, strong plots and Stockholm as the backdrop," said Patrick Nebout, CEO of Nice Drama. "As we have seen from the likes of The Killing, this kind of realistic crime has powerful international appeal."

The other two titles optioned are Tusenskönor (2010) and Änglavakter (2011). Ohlsson will publish the fourth in the series, Paradisoffer, this year.
