Swedish Crime Drama “Fallen” with Sofia Helin Now Streaming on SBS On Demand




Fallen,” the new Swedish crime drama, reunites “The Bridge” star Sofia Helin with its creator, Camilla Ahlgren, in a compelling narrative that explores sisterhood, parenthood, guilt, grief, and the journey toward healing after trauma. The series, which is now streaming on SBS On Demand, has received acclaim for its nuanced portrayal of complex relationships and the aftermath of tragedy.

The show follows Helin’s character, Iris Broman, a police officer who becomes the head of a cold-case team in Malmö following a personal tragedy. She moves to the southern town of Ystad to live with her half-sister, Kattis (Hedda Stiernstedt), where she becomes entangled in a cold case that stirs up old secrets and intertwines the lives of several people.

The series, produced by Filmlance, is a collaboration between Ahlgren and Helin, who previously worked together on the iconic Nordic noir series “The Bridge.” Their reunion in “Fallen” has been highly anticipated by fans of the genre.

Fallen” delves into the complexities of sisterhood, with Iris and Kattis navigating their relationship dynamics and underlying challenges. The show also explores the impact of trauma and the process of moving forward, raising questions about how a person progresses and embraces light after experiencing profound darkness.


The series has been praised for its nuanced portrayal of its characters and their relationships, with Helin’s performance as Iris receiving particular acclaim. The show offers a thoughtful examination of the emotional journey of its characters, providing a deeper exploration of the aftermath of trauma and the search for truth and justice.

In addition to its narrative strengths, “Fallen” also showcases the picturesque countryside and coastal town of Ystad (where fellow classic Swedish crime drama Wallander is also set), providing a visual contrast to the bustling city of Malmö. This duality of settings enhances the storytelling, reflecting the characters’ internal struggles and their journey toward healing.

“Fallen” is more than just a crime drama; it’s a thoughtful exploration of the human condition, with a talented cast and a blend of suspense, emotion, and thought-provoking themes. It looks set to be a welcome addition to the Nordic noir genre.

All episodes of Fallen are streaming now on SBS On Demand
