Good Friday

It’s Good Friday and the season premiere of the popular talk show Frida-y. Spotlights fill the stage, the audience sits quietly in anticipation of what the evening has to offer. Backstage, a controversial guest is waiting, invited personally by the host, Frida von Engen. She wants to make sure to get high ratings for her comeback on screen and to once and for all consolidate her role as the most intriguing host with the most exciting show.

But in the middle of the show, which is a live broadcast, a masked person emerges from the shadows. A bomber vest is hidden under the hoodie. There is no doubt that the threat is real: “The doors are locked, no one gets out of here. If you interrupt the broadcast, everyone dies.”

Good Friday is the standalone sequel to The Birthday, which was released in September 2023 and topped the sales charts. With a focus on driven tension and complex relationships, Sofie Sarenbrant and Carina Bergfeldt have created another world-class thriller.
