Airdate: Farang

SBS screens a new Scandi-noir drama, Farang, which as the title suggests is actually set in Thailand.

The 8 part, which is already available at SBS on Demand has been given a late night slot, launching with a double next Monday.

This premiered in Sweden in March.

Set in Thailand, Farang is a thrilling new series about love, betrayal and the complicated ties that bind a father with his daughter. The series features a stellar cast, including Ola Rapace (Skyfall), Louise Nyvall (Girls Lost) and Yayaying Rhatha Phongam (Only God Forgives).

Former criminal Rickard (Rapace) has vanished. Fleeing Sweden and the old friends he has testified against, he abandons his name, his life and his family to start over in Thailand. Ten years later and still with a price on his head, Rickard knows that a return home would be a death sentence.
