We enjoyed the first series of Swedish crime drama, Rebecka Martinsson, when it aired in the UK on All4/Walter Presents last year. One of its strengths was the performance of lead actress, Ido Engvoll, who brought different dimensions to Rebecka (not least a level of ambiguity).
Now we’re hearing that Ingvoll has left the show to be replaced by a new actress.
Based on Åsa Larsson’s novels, the series tells of a Stockholm lawyer who returns to her icy northern Swedish hometown after a childhood friend’s death.
According to Expressen, TV4 and C More – the show’s Swedish broadcasters – have hired Sascha Zacharias to become the new Rebecka and that series two sees Rebecka Martinsson work as a prosecutor in Kiruna after she moved home to her grandmother’s house in Kurravaara. But she also has a past that she needs to deal with. Wh did Rebecka leave her father and live with her grandmother when she was a child?
