Love & Anarchy (Kärlek & Anarki) stars Ida Engvoll (Rebecka Martinsson, The Restaurant, Bonus Family) as Sofie, a career driven consultant and married mother of two. When Sofie gets an assignment to modernize an old publishing house, she meets young IT tech Max (Björn Mosten in his acting debut), and an unexpected flirtatious game begins. They secretly challenge each other to do things that question societal norms. It starts innocently enough, but as the game gets more and more daring, the consequences grow beyond proportions.

Said Engvoll:

“I hope Love & Anarchy becomes cheeky, funny and will give a new perspective on our society. To me, the story is a paradox taking place within and around my character Sofie in a society that isn’t fully embracing the human being.”

The main cast includes Johannes Bah Kuhnke (Real Humans), Björn Kjellman (Annika Bengtzon), Reine Brynolfsson (Spring Tide), and Gizem Erdogan (Alex).

Also featuring in the eight-part series are Lars Väringer (Alex), Elsa Ageman Reiland, Bejamin Shaps, Malin Levanon (Black Widows), Fredrik Hammar (Thicker than Water), Ejke Blomberg (Course in Self-Annihilation), Carla Sehn (Half Brother), and Ruben Lopez.

A production of FLX (Quicksand, Fallet), the series is created by Lisa Langseth (Euphoria, Hotel, Pure), who directs all episodes and serves as head writer alongside Alex Haridi (Quicksand, Blue Eyes, Real Humans). It is produced by Fatima Varhos (Bonus Family) and Frida Asp (The Simple Heist), and executive produced by Pontus Edgren (The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared) and Martina Håkansson (Blinded).

Love & Anarchy will launch exclusively on Netflix in 2020. You can add it to your queue now.
