I hope someone can help. I saw a brilliant Swedish film on BBC2 in either 1990 or 1991. I am not a fan of swedish cinema so I wasn't familiar with the actors or the director. I just remember it was one of the best thrillers I've ever seen and I'd love to get it on DVD, but i can't remember the name! My memory of the film is sketchy as it was nearly 20 years ago, but I do remember it centred on the hunt for a serial killer. A rather complex middle-aged detective headed up the case. At the centre of the story was a young woman with psychic abilities who was in a rather unhappy marriage. Her psychic abilities were very subtle, but i remember she had the knack of learning a lot about people by inspecting the bottom of their coffee cups! I remember when i saw the film in the early nineties i got the impression it was a very recent production so I would say it was made in the eighties. Does this film sound familiar at all? Does anyone know the name?

Could be the original series of Wallender.

Definitely not Wallander. The hunt goes on!

-Are you absolutely certain this was Swedish ?- there are many (good) Norwegian and Danish police/ murder type movies+TV in the last 30 years,which to anyone not familiar with Scandinavia may well think of as in the Swedish genre. (Language -especially the written subtitles - is very similar for those not speaking any of those closely related languages).
I don't mean to sound patronising, but have you already written to the Beeb about helping trace this one ?They can be vey helpful.

Perhaps you saw the Swedish tv-film Månguden (trans The Moon God) from 1988.
