Critically Acclaimed Swedish Gangster Series
Snabba Cash is based on Jens Lapidus’ Stockholm Noir novel trilogy. The title of the nervy six-part Swedish gangster series translates roughly as ‘Easy Money’. The show takes place in a raw, brutal and alluring environment and follows three main characters.
Leya (Evin Ahmad) is a single mother, who is attempting to gain success in the tech industry while also creating a better life for herself and her son Sami – far away from her late husband’s way of life in the criminal environment.
Salim (Alexander Abdallah) is the right hand man of gangster Ravy (Dada Fungula Bozela). He lives a divided life as a festive wedding singer and cold-blooded executioner.
And finally, the teenager Tim (Ali Alarik), who lives alone with his father and makes time fly by doing rough pranks, all the while dreaming of escaping from his boring, not so fashionable life.
The three destinies are quickly intertwined in a jumble of debt, love, friendship, dreams – and the pursuit of Snabba Cash (Easy Money).
