Congratulations to David Dencik for winning this year’s Guldbagge Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Thomas Quick in the psycho thriller The Perfect Patient (Quick) inspired by the infamous Thomas Quick legal scandal.
In the 1990s, Thomas Quick confessed to more than 30 murders and was convicted of eight, making him Sweden’s most notorious serial killer. In a documentary by Hannes Råstam, which aired on Swedish television in December 2008, Quick withdrew all his confessions and was finally acquitted of all murders. Helming the feature is Swedish director Mikael Håfström, whose 2004 feature Evil was nominated for an Oscar.
This year’s Guldbagge Awards were handed out in Stockholm on 20th January.
