EXCLUSIVE: Sid Gentle Films is looking to build on the international smash hit Killing Eve with another crime adaptation. The British producer has secured the rights to Watching You, the first installment in Swedish author Jan Arnald’s latest series of detective novels, Deadline can reveal.

Better known by his pen name Arne Dahl, the Scandinavian writer first published Watching You in 2016 and the novel tells the story of Stockholm-based detective, Sam Berger, and his attempts to find a serial killer following the disappearance of a 15-year-old girl. As the case unravels, it reveals sinister connections with Berger’s own life.

Watching You will be adapted by Vivienne Harvey, who penned an episode in the third season of Hulu’s Harlots and has a credit on Netflix’s The Indian Detective. She is also an actress and has appeared in shows including Black Earth Rising, which was a Netflix and BBC co-production.
