Ready for Another Nordic Mystery?

Since Quicksand, by Swedish author Malin Persson Giolito (Other Press), is currently high on my tall, teetering, to-be-read stack, my eye caught this recent notice in Variety:
Netflix is stepping into the Swedish-language market with “Quicksand,” the streaming service’s first Swedish original series, to be penned by “The Bridge” writer Camilla Ahlgren.

The show is based on Malin Persson Giolito’s bestselling novel “Quicksand,” which has been published in 26 countries and was voted Nordic Crime Novel of the year in 2016. It centers on a high school student, Maja Norberg, who finds herself on trial for murder following a mass shooting at a prep school in Stockholm’s wealthiest suburb. When the events of that tragic day are revealed, so are the private details about her relationship with a boy and his dysfunctional family.
