Academy nominee director Mikael Håfström has returned to Scandinavian cinema with this new journalistic thriller THE PERFECT PATIENT, based on the book by Hannes Råstam  ”Thomas Quick The Making of a Serial Killer". The upcoming film holds a high-profiled Scandinavian cast, consisting of award-winning actor David Dencik (TOP OF THE LAKE, 2017; A ROYAL AFFAIR, 2012), Jonas Karlsson (THE SNOWMAN, 2017) and new talent Alba August (BECOMING ASTRID, 2019; THE RAIN, 2018). Director Mikael Håfström is highly acknowledged for his works as a director and screenwriter, which include EVIL (2003), 1408 (2007) and the NETFLIX TV-series BLOODLINE, for which he directed several episodes (2016-2017).


THE PERFECT PATIENT is the captivating story about the biggest legal scandal in Swedish history, the story about the reporter who questioned an entire legal system. Hannes Råstam was dedicated to proving the innocence of Thomas Quick and unmask the legal chaos which sentenced Quick to a life in psychiatric prison. However, no one was interested in exonerating and freeing the worst serial killer in Sweden, a cannibalistic rapist who had been sentenced for eight murders and confessed to another twenty-five. This tale lays out a puzzle for audiences to put together as the incredible story of the Thomas Quick case is laid bare, piece by piece.
