Black Lake S02 /
Svartsjön 2

Ester stars in the critically acclaimed thriller series Black Lake (Svartsjön) season 2.

Now on Shudder (U.S & Canada), BBC Four (UK) and Viaplay (Sweden).

“A freestanding prequel to the original ‘Black Lake’ (Swedish: ‘Svartsjön’), season two stars Filip Berg (‘Black Lake’ season one); Hedda Stiernstedt (‘The Restaurant’); Alida Morberg (‘Sensoria’); André Eriksen (‘Vikings’); Bahar Pars (‘A Man Called Ove’); David Nzinga (NENT Group’s ‘Hassel’); Ester Uddén (‘Finaste familjen’); Anja Landgré (‘Nina Frisk’); and Daniel Larsson (the ‘Johan Falk’ series).

The series opens with Johan Ceder (Filip Berg) checking into a drug rehabilitation centre in the Stockholm archipelago as he struggles to free himself both from family expectations and the criminal underworld. But something on the island isn’t quite right – and it’s soon clear that in season two of ‘Black Lake’, the secrets are darker than ever.”

Ester Uddén och Christian Dywik

Särskilt imponerar förstås Christian Dyvik och Ester Uddén som Billy och Sylvia, vilkas olika kamp går ut över relationen. Rollerna ser ändå sina problem och är kapabla att lösa dem.

Christian Dyvik and Ester Uddén especially impresses as Billy and Sylvia, in which their struggle affects their relationship. Even so, the characters see their problems and are capable of solution.
