ALEX is a nail-biting thriller with engaging characters inhabiting a world where the boundaries between right and wrong, cop or criminal, have long been blurred. Dragomir Mrsic (Easy Money, Edge of Tomorrow) stars as the hardened – and corrupt – cop Alex Leko, who finally decides to leave the underworld behind. However, his darkest connections keep pulling him back, and soon he finds himself and his family in great danger. At the same time, Alex gets a new partner, Frida (Rakel Wärmländer) with a hidden agenda. In season two of the Viaplay original series both Leko and Frida return, with Maximilian Mrsic as Alex’s son Simon, and Anja Lundqvist as his wife Kim.

The series is based on an original idea from Dragomir Mrsic and Mikael Cross. Lead script writer is Frans Wiklund with Alain Darborg directing.

ALEX is produced by SF Studios, producers Nicklas Wikström Nicastro (Academy Award® nominated A Man Called Ove) and Niklas Larsson and co-produced with Gothenburg based producer Film i Väst and UK based producer Nevision for Viaplay. The series is distributed internationally by About Premium Content and by Lumière in the Benelux area.
