24 Best movies & tv shows from Sweden to watch so far in 2017

It might be hard to imagine these days, but along with Denmark, Sweden once had one of the most thriving film industries in the world. We’re talking about a time before Hollywood’s hegemony obviously. But even though Sweden has been a relatively small player ever since the 1920’s, it has always been a significant one. In the 1950’s, Ingmar Bergman conquered the international world of cinema (or art in general) with his deeply philosophical art films such as ‘Wild Strawberries’ and ‘The Seventh Seal’. In his wake, many gifted Swedish directors followed.

But it’s not just directors that put the Nordic country on the map. What to think of iconic international actors and actresses like Greta Garbo, Ingrid Bergman, Max von Sydow, or more recently, Alexander Skarsgård and Alicia Vikander?

Up to this day, there is something very particular and distinctive about Swedish cinema. Contemporary filmmakers like Ruben Östlund and Lukas Moodysson for example, carry on a long running and rich cinematic tradition. This list features our favorite Swedish movies and TV series that came out in the last couple of years.
