‘Swedish Dicks’ is Swedes’ top pick

January 5 2017

Viaplay’s ‘Swedish Dicks’ was the most in-demand digital original in Sweden in 2016, TBI Vision and Parrot Analytics just revealed.

Swedish Dicks’ is a comedy series that follows two unlicensed private detectives, played by Peter Stormare and Johan Glans, as they solve bizarro cases in Los Angeles. The second season starts late 2017.

TBI Vision and Parrot Analytics dug into ratings data (where available) along with peer-to-peer sharing, social chatter and other factors to estimate viewer demand. In 2016, ‘Swedish Dicks’ was Sweden’s most in-demand digital original, in front of international hits such as ‘Stranger Things’ and ‘Narcos’.


“It’s fantastic to see ‘Swedish Dicks’ ahead of some great American original productions,” says Jonas Karlén, CEO of Viaplay.

“Viaplay is the leading streaming service in the Nordics, and we will continue investing in Viaplay Originals over the coming years.”

Talking about his role, Peter says it’s the first time in his career he can watch himself without throwing up. Now you try!
