Box 21 is a dark and authentic thriller about corruption and revenge

When the severely wounded Lidia is brought to a hospital in Stockholm, doctors are horrified to learn that her injuries derive from a brutal whipping at a brothel, where she is being forced to work after being trafficked from Romania.

In the same hospital, senior police officer Ewert Grens is chasing a lead that may just expose a notorious mafia boss, a dangerous man who Ewert hates with a vengeance. With the lines between criminal and victim rapidly blurring, two stories of passionate reprisal twist together, ending in a dramatic climax in a room full of hostages in the hospital’s basement morgue.

Can Ewert and his young colleague Mariana Hermansson untangle the complex and deadly web of secrets? What answers does the elusive Box 21 hold? And, when it comes down to it, will Mariana protect the senior officer she so admires?

Box 21 is based on the award winning, bestselling series of crime novels by Roslund & Hellström.

Box 21 is streaming at SBS On Demand from Thursday 5 November
