Strongman (Starke Man)

The maverick politician Lars-Göran Bengtsson works earnestly to modernise the country’s second-most boring municipality – Svinarp

No problem is too small, no discussion too meaningless. Not for Svinarp’s strongman. This is the story of the troubled municipal commissioner Lars-Göran Bengtsson, the loyal municipal director Mats, the heavy smoking administrative director Gunvor and Jonna the public relations officer from Stockholm. Together, they try to modernise and polish up the image of Svinarp, Sweden’s second-most boring municipality.
