New Nordic Cinema: The Perfect Patient

In this captivating story about a reporter who questioned an entire legal system, The Perfect Patient follows journalist Hannes Råstam (Jonas Karlsson) as he digs into the notorious case of Thomas Quick (David Dencik), serving life in a psychiatric prison for eight murders and believed to be the worst serial killer in Swedish history after having confessed to an additional 25. As Råstam investigates the conditions behind those confessions — unmasking the legal chaos that led to the conviction, and the incredible circumstances surrounding it — he becomes dedicated to proving Quick’s innocence.
