Black Widows - Scandinavia


When your mid-life crisis is pure murder

Best friends Rebecka, Johanne and Kira are enjoying a weekend at a summer cottage in Norway with their husbands. The men board their fishing boat and leave the wives behind on shore. As the boat sails into the distance, it explodes without warning. Back on the pier, the three women raise the champagne flutes – ‘Skoll’! Rebecka, Johanne and Kira killed their husbands to win their freedom but the “accident” soon becomes a joint Swedish / Norwegian murder investigation where events and situations are darker and more complex than they seem with hints that their husbands were involved in some questionable business dealings. All evidence points towards a former criminal as the prime suspect and the widows seem to be in the clear…. but freedom has its price. 

Mixing the best of Nordic crime drama with crackling dialogue and dark, wicked humour, this new adaptation of Black Widows explodes onto the screen with strong production values and a terrific cast, featuring Cecilia Forss (“Simple Simon”) and Peter Stormare (“Minority Report”, “Armageddon”).
