Film House Germany, Kamala Films and Thunder Road Acquire the Rights to The Swimmer
Film House Germany, Kamala Films and Thunder Road have come together to acquire the rights to The Swimmer, the first novel by Swedish author Joakim Zander.
Kamala Films founder Marissa McMahon said,
“With his first novel, Joakim proves that he is an immensely talented writer who understands the current international landscape told through the eyes of a politician, attorney and former military man”
Klara Walldeen, orphaned as a child and brought up by her grandparents on a remote Swedish archipelago, is now a political aide in Brussels. And she has just seen something she shouldn’t: something people will kill to keep hidden.
On the other side of the world, an old spy hides from his past. Once, he was a man of action: so dedicated to the cause that he abandoned his baby daughter to keep his cover. Now the only thing he lives for is swimming in the local pool.
Then, on Christmas eve, Klara is thrown into a terrifying chase through Europe. Only the Swimmer can save her. But time is running out…
