‘Easy Money’ Producer Bets On ‘Raging Blaze’

"Raging Blaze," a publishing hit in Sweden, will soon hit U.S. and U.K. stands

Tre Vanner, the top Scandinavian production banner behind the “Easy Money” trilogy, is on board to develop the bigscreen adaptation of Andreas Norman’s debut novel ” Into The Raging Blaze.”

The political thriller follows Carina Dymek, a young diplomat working for the Swedish ministry of foreign affairs who gets framed and becomes the red herring in a plot involving surveillance corruption and global anti-terrorism. Meanwhile, Dymek gets on the radar of Bente Jensen, a secret security agent based in Brussels, who is tapped to investigate her case.

“Not since I read ‘Easy Money’ in 2006 has a novel struck me as such an obvious adaptation into a truly awesome movie,” said Fredrik Wikstrom Nicastro, who is producing the pic. ” Into a ‘Raging Blaze’ will become a modern and internationally competitive political thriller as never before seen in Swedish filmmaking. In the spirit of ‘The Fugitive,” “Michael Clayton” and ‘The Constant Gardener,’ but with two super-cool female characters in the lead.”

Andreas Norman, who made his debut as a poet in 1996, made an unexpected career move into diplomacy . He notably worked for the Swedish ministry for foreign affairs with the counter-terrorism unit (with the Middle East and North Africa department) and worked for Swedish embassies in the Baltics and the Western Balkans.

“Raging Blaze” came out in Sweden last Spring and turned out to be a hit, drawing comparisons to “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.” It will be published in U.S. and U.K. in April 2014 by Quercus Books.

Jon Riley, editor-in-chief at Quercus Books, described “Raging Blaze” as “the first novel to anticipate the surveillance scandal of the (Edward) Snowden affair that has rocked government and public reaction across America and Europe.”
