Vi följer svenska brottslingars blodslinje i fyra säsonger, varje säsong i en ny tidperiod. Baserad på historiska fakta och mer eller mindre kända svenskättlingar. Dramatiseringen tar sin början 1854 i Linköping med ett av världens största bankrån och slutar i säsong 4 i Ryssland på 1990-talet.
How can a singular unprecedented event create generations of derelicts? The essence of this question creates a series idea never seen before, inspired by a true, amazing story.
On a cold spring night on March 25th 1854, two men are about to commit the biggest bank heist in the history of Europe, only leaving a sarcastic note behind with one coin basically saying “no one should be left with nothing”. They do indeed succeed, but bragging in a local pub, after countless ales, get them arrested after almost managing to flee the local police through alleys and rooftops. The leader and instigator, Nils, get released early from prison simply because the local chief of Police was in on it. He gives him only one option - a one way ticket on a steamer to America with the promise to never return. On the boat Nils meets other outcast Swedes and a friendships start to form, but also the foundation for a Swedish derelict gang, so when finally arriving in Minneapolis late summer 1854 they start doing what they do best, simply being ruthless, violent and cunning.
