Wednesday, 10 October. The second floor of the Citykyrkan Adolf Fredriks kyrkogata 10 in Stockholm is bursting with. Coffee-making facilities and cateringmackor. Film cameras, tripods and ljusskärmar. Ljudbommar, microphones, scaffolding and something tons more of things that filming requires.
The Norwegian director Per-Olav Sørensen is outside the mahognymörka fictional courtroom and waiting on the klappan. Maja (Hanna notice of attendance), the film's protagonist, is led into and received by their counsel Peder Sander (David Dencik). The accused artonåringen from Djursholm suspected of the murder, will now face the Swedish judicial system.
– Maja. Hello, welcome. But wait now (he turns towards her häktesvakt played by Marall Nasiri) she'll have the belt on?
" No, we'll just switch to the handcuffs, she replies.
" Yes, eh well. We put in the time if two minutes Maja.
(Sebastian Sporsén) urges her to let out her hair and wipe away the lipstick.
– A free of any makeup face is more honest, " he explains. A clean face has nothing to hide, " he says to artonåringen in front of him.
On the other side of the hallway, waiting for Maja's parents, classmates, kriminalreportrar and the curious general public.
Maja interpreter, tjugotreåriga Hanna notice of attendance, played in amateur theatricals while he was growing up and was greeted with applause for his role in the tv series ”30 degrees in February” already in 2012, but has not been a single semester at the Stockholm academy of dramatic arts.

" I grew up in the country, in a sommarstugeområde outside Åkersberga. It is norrort, but not so much upper class just. Though I have gone to school in Prescott so I have friends who come from such circles, " she concludes in a pause of the shooting.
notice of attendance mean that the script by Camilla Ahlgren has in common with the Norwegian tv-series ”Shame”.
– the Portraits of young people feels very good, it is a complex series that try to go in with their thoughts. It creates a picture of something other than just rebellious teens who cause trouble – which they often will be in the movies with vuxenfokus, she says.
– the Gap between young people and adults is a theme in the story. How difficult it can be to reach their parents and how it then built a gap. Fixed it also describes the parents ' perspective - how do you reach their teen.
it has been demanding, she admits willingly.
" It has been very emotional and heavy scenes, the days when you felt more emotionally exhausted than otherwise, though it has still felt safe thanks to the other actors and the director.
" She has a little good girl in herself, she takes care of her sister and want to be there for his family, but at the same time attracted her to not become like their parents, but to break free and be rebellious, which of course is common among teenagers. Stuck with Sebastian, (the boyfriend played by Felix Sandman,) becomes the release is so much greater and more chaotic than is usual, answers Hanna notice of attendance – who remember their own teenage years as a quiet and cosy långfilmstittande with the best friends rather than bratsiga drug and spritexcesser of Sebastian's kind.
" Mm, that reappear in each scene, and gives the series a movement – who is it that is in control, who is it that has power now, the upper hand?
She recalls the tv series Samir (William Spetz) with his background in the Middle east have seemingly little power because he comes from a much lower social class than school friends.
the Series highlights how Sweden is still very segregated, even if it is something we don't really want to take it all in. Samir have to struggle very much to be able to take anywhere, but has his intellect which he can use as a means of power. And it has also Maja – she can also see through people and their motives as game pieces, see the charades that are available.
as Maja in fierce competition with over a thousand applicants. In the future however, she would do other than stand in front of the cameras.
" I love the psychology and the acting, both of which are super fun so I'm going to actually dedicate myself to both of them, so I'll see where I end up.
Director Per-Olav Sørensen has created the tv series along with Lisa Farzaneh (”hidden in snow”, ”Syrror”).
– Since the series is based on Maja's thoughts and opinions, we were, of course, completely dependent on to find a really good Maja and Hanna is on the brutal English fucking fantastic. Without her, we had been without a chance. I have filmed her from all possible angles, but she is relentlessly interesting, " says Per-Olav Sørensen, who in the past is behind productions such as ”Nobel” and ”the Battle for the tungvattnet”.
– as a director, go into the mind and thoughts of a artonårig girl is a privilege, and I have tried to create a dialogue similar to the year group talks, how they think, what they say, what they do, and then filmed it.
" Definitely, it is a depiction of a segregated Sweden, accounts director Sørensen without reflection, but primarily, it is a extreme love story that this segregation is reflected in the.

David Dencik, rättegångsdramats defense attorney, uses the word ”safe” when he tries to describe how the Swedish law is to deal with those young people in the film. He hopes that the series can provide an alternative image of Sweden than the usual.
" this feels far more believable than everything else that is called ”nordic noir”, which I have also been with in and that is a little speculative – movies where it's just raining and everyone is sad, he notes with a distorted smile.
Dencik is also excited that the series will be seen by 100 million Netflixprenumeranter the world over.
" I have been in many movies, but they have stayed in Sweden, at most, also in Norway. ”Frankenstein” appeared nowhere – not even in my home country Denmark. Now to get to work for such a digitized platform feels really cool, " he says and adds:
perhaps the dubbed in Paraguay or Ulan Bator's how it is.
