Based on the bestselling book series by Swedish author Johan Theorin, Echoes from the Dead is a mystery drama directed by Daniel Alfredson (Millennium 2 and 3: The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest).

It’s produced by the Swedish film and television production company Yellow Bird.
Echoes from the Dead is in post-production with delivery scheduled for autumn 2013.
On a foggy day Julia’s six-year-old son, Jens, goes missing. Despite a thorough search, the boy is never found. Twenty years later Julia’s father receives one of the shoes Jens was wearing the day he disappeared. Who sent it? Why? Is the boy still alive? This inexplicable act suddenly awakens a hope in Julia that she might see her son again… or that she could find his body and murderer.
As she returns to her father’s island, she hears stories of the mythical Nils Kant – a murderer who once was the terror of the island. He has been dead and buried for years, long before Julia’s son disappeared. But Julia’s father uncovers that his death and burial were only a fake. While on his tracks, Julia accepts the help and love of Lennart, a local police inspector. His dark and mysterious past brings him a lot closer to Jens’ disappearance than she might think…
