To be able to portray Stig Engström is both an exciting challenge and a great responsibility, but also something of a therapy.

Since I myself was in the cinema on the night of the murder, the Palme murder has always been like an abscess that never wants to disappear - and I am not alone in feeling that ", says Robert Gustafsson in a press release.

In June 2020, prosecutor Krister Pettersson pointed out Stig Engström as Olof Palme's murderer.

But there was no trial and the preliminary investigation was dropped because Engström was dead.

The roles also include Eva Melander, Mikael Persbrandt and Peter Andersson.

The five-part series will be directed by Charlotte Brändström and Simon Kaijser and produced by FLX.

"The Improbable Killer" premieres on Netflix 2021.
