Swedish director Daniel Alfredson oversees the second of the Intrigo films
Swedish filmmaker Daniel Alfredson knows a thing or two about working on trilogies. Some years after directing the last two of the original Millennium series (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo etc.) the release of Intrigo: Dear Agnes will mark the second of the third Intrigo films he has helmed (Intrigo: Samaria is up next). The films are all based on a collection of novellas and short stories written by Swedish crime author Håkan Nesser. Gemma Chan takes the lead role, who after finding fame in the UK with Humans, has quickly graduated to Hollywood with the likes of Crazy Rich Asians, Captain Marvel and The Eternals in the near future.

With the death of her husband, Agnes is desperate for money. Then she runs into her old friend Henny, who is enraged at her unfaithful spouse, Peter. Henny makes Agnes a shocking offer—enough cash to live a better life, if she will murder Peter—leading to an explosive, unforgettable climax.
Alfredson directs a cast starring Gemma Chan, Carla Juri, and Jamie Sives.
Intrigo: Dear Agnes will arrive on VOD in the US on May 8.
