The excellent Swedish crime series Murder in Sandhamn (2010–) continues during the periods of the seventh production season.
From the previous period, it is familiar that stories have changed from hour-long and three-part plot patterns to feature-length entities.
What is new is that the new four episodes are no longer based directly on the detective stories of the author Viveca Sten, but on the world he created.
The same is repeated in the eighth production season.
Nora Linde’s (Alexandra Rapaport) promising start to a romance with Thomas Andreasson (Jakob Cedergren) at the end of the previous season will not be continued.
It turns out that Thomas has moved to Denmark to follow his ex-spouse.

Nora gets a new, handsome colleague from Norwegian police Alexander (Nicolai Cleve Broch, familiar from the series Black Painted), whose peculiar ways of working bring more humor to the series.
The wife of this mysteriously lost Vicky and the son of Tor is one of the plot’s plot patterns.
The addictive contradiction of this pleasant and not very violent series of crimes arises from the despair and unfortunate coincidences surrounding the idyllic archipelago summer.
In the opening period, the headache is caused by the deaths of young people caused by a new chemical drug.
Nora is touched by events up close when her daughter Anna (Ping Mon H. Wallén) disappears.
Murder in Sandhamn, Mondays 21.9.
