Now, a decade later, the unexpected couple meet again in the “Ein MordsTeam Investigative Again” sequel.

Clark Olofsson is one of the most famous criminals in Sweden. Even as a young man, he was sentenced to several prison terms in the 1960s – including for murder, drug trafficking and robbery. The 26-year-old Olofson gained international fame in 1973 for his involvement in a bank robbery in which four hostages were held for several days. During subsequent court proceedings, the victims spoke positively of the perpetrators about Olofsson and reported that they had had an affair with bank robbers while the hostages were being held.

It was the birth of a term that is still known to this day: “Stockholm Syndrome”. Now the Swedish Netflix series “Clark” describes how it got into this in the first place. Based on Olofson’s autobiography, director Jonas Okerlund tells the story of the charismatic gangster portrayed by Bill Skarsgård (“He”) with humor and suspense. The six-part production will be available on Netflix starting May 5th.

At first glance, Michael (Colin Firth) and Kathleen Peterson (Tony Collette) enjoy a harmonious marriage. But when Kathleen died one day falling down a flight of stairs, investigators targeted her husband: There are many indications that the wealthy director’s death was no accident—including the fact that a friend of Michael Peterson’s neighbor had her a few years earlier. He died in similar circumstances…

The star-studded true crime drama “The Staircase” is based on a true story: In December 2001, American writer Michael Peterson was arrested after the suspicious death of his wife. Several documentaries have shed light on the murder trial in the past.

With the eight-part series by Maggie Cohn (American Crime Story) and Antonio Campos (The Devil All the Time), Sky now retells the story in a fictional production for the first time. The original version of “The Staircase” will be available to stream on Sky Ticket starting May 5th. A dubbed German version will follow on Sky Atlantic in July.

However, when one day they connect with American rap, everything changes for the three shy friends. Together with their classmate Dennis (Paula Hartmann), they found the hip-hop group Atomic Trinity. Her big goal: Swing the stage at the school festival.
