In this popular reimagining of the hit Dutch drama Penoza, Alexandra Rapaport (The Sandhamn Murders) stars as Sonja, a suburban mom living in Stockholm with her successful husband and three adorable children. And they all live happily ever after. No, just kidding. Here’s what really happens: Sonja’s husband, Fredrik, is in the marijuana biz together with Sonja’s jailbird brother, Niklas, and their buddy Stein, who proves to have exceptionally poor judgment as he steals 35 kilos of coke from a gangster named Broman. The coke goes missing, Fredrik winds up dead and Broman, naturally enough, wants his money – which results in Sonja being drawn into the criminal underworld to pay off the debt. Mayhem ensues, as you can see in the clip below…

Alexandra Rapaport

Alexandra Rapaport plays the titular Gåsmamman, which translates as “Mother Goose” – it’s all explained in Episode 4. One of Sweden’s most popular and prolific actors, you’ll recognize Alexandra from many other marquee MHz Choice titles: The Sandhamn Murders, Spring Tide, The Team, Codename Hunter and Johan Falk. She’s also the executive producer of this series, so don’t mess with her.

On the other side of the camera, Gåsmamman is a production of Filmlance International, the Swedish production house responsible for a number of MHz Choice subscriber favorites: Beck, Spring Tide, The Sandhamn Murders and The Bridge. The husband-and-wife team of Camilla Ahlgren and Martin Asphaug handled writing duties for the series, and director Richard Holm is probably best known to MHz Choice subscribers for his work on Johan Falk.
