Swedish Action Thriller Film “Black Crab” Coming To Netflix

Swedish action thriller Black Crab, directed by Adam Berg, is coming to Netflix in March 2022, the streaming services company announced.

Black Crab is a Swedish action thriller set in a post-apocalyptic world torn apart by war. During a long, harsh winter, six soldiers embark on a covert mission across a frozen archipelago, risking their lives to transport a mysterious package that could end the war.

As they enter hostile enemy territory, they have no idea what dangers lie ahead or who—if anyone—they can trust. But for speed skater turned soldier Caroline Edh, the mission is about something else entirely. Starring Noomi Rapace in a film directed by Adam Berg, BLACK CRAB follows six soldiers on a desperate mission to bring an end to the war which has destroyed their lives.

The film is based on the novel Black Crab by Jerker Virdborg.
