The Truth Will Out on Walter Presents this February, as the online channel exposes the biggest miscarriage of justice in Swedish history.
The streaming service, which is part of All 4, is dedicated to TV from around the world. Sweden has been a major part of its line-up, but the country is responsible for more than Scand noir: The Truth Will Out is a tense crime thriller inspired by the true case of Thomas Quick, who confessed to 30 murders but was later found to be innocent. The case still baffles Sweden today.
The series, created by Aron Levander and Hans Jörnlind, follows troubled detective Peter Wendel as he attempts to create a new, dedicated cold case team. Wendel’s goal encounters a set-back when an unknown killer leaves a message for the police. It states that Sweden’s most notorious serial killer is actually a fraud. In order to uncover the truth, Peter has to pull his cold case team together quickly but is limited to an unusual bunch of misfits of the police force – the only officers currently available in Stockholm. His newly formed team find themselves at odds with the powerful group of people who got the serial killer convicted in the first place. With a more personal connection to the case than he’d like to admit, and the political media hot on his trail, will Wendel’s inept team be able to expose the truth that has been hidden for so long?
Lead actor Robert Gustafsson, a comedic actor referred to as “the funniest man in Sweden”, makes a foray into dramatic acting with the drama, alongside Louise Peterhoff whom viewers will recognise from the series The Bridge.
The series will premiere at 11pm on Channel 4 on 11th February, with the whole eight-episode box set available on Walter Presents following its broadcast.
