Walter Presents is bringing Thicker Than Water Series 2 to All 4 on 2nd March 2018.
The Scandi drama, which centres on a dysfunctional family, is set at an idyllic guesthouse on a remote Swedish island. It stars Aliette Opheim, Björn Bengtsson, Joel Spira, Tobias Zilliacus and Stina Ekblad.
Series two takes us to the unforgiving wintery climate of island of Sunnanö in the Baltic Archipelago, and the three siblings Waldemar are now equal co-owners of the guesthouse and estate that their mother left behind. But how strong are the ties of kinship when some unexpected events suddenly threaten to tear the family and the guesthouse’s future apart?
Thicker Than Water deals with issues of identity and guilt in a dysfunctional family attempting to heal old wounds. Having spent a few months alone on the island while his marriage hangs in the balance, Oskar has lost purpose, taken to drinking and allowed the guesthouse to fall into disarray.
Jonna returns following a stint in London and puts her mind to preparing the guesthouse for the Christmas period with Lasse. Lasse has big plans for the guesthouse but struggles to attract the much-needed investment. True to form, he eventually finds a shady funding solution that jeopardises all three siblings, despite his promise to Jonna to put his criminal dealings behind him. Can the siblings put aside their differences and make the necessary sacrifices to turn the business around for the sake of the wider family?
Thicker Than Water won Best Television Drama at the prestigious Kristallen awards in Sweden and stars Joel Spira and Aliette Opheim were nominated for Best Actor and Actress respectively.
The show was created by Henrik Jansson-Schweizer who is best-known for the award-winning film The 100 Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared.
