Return of Danny Robins' comedy with award-winning comedian Adam Riches and some of the most popular comics and actors from Swedish television, recorded in Sweden.
Adam Riches stars as the bemused and culturally challenged comedian abroad - recorded in Sweden with a Swedish cast, and written by Danny Robins.
It's three years since Geoff moved to the tiny north Swedish town of Yxsjö with his girlfriend Linda (Sissela Benn from the Swedish version of The Office). It has been quite a culture shock and they've been through a lot in three years - rotting herring, moose and bears, battles with language, perfect ex-boyfriends and ice hockey, the birth of a son, a marriage proposal and a runaway hot air balloon.
This year promises much as Geoff's mother-in-law Gunilla (comedian Anna-Lena Bergelin) teaches him Swedish and his father-in-law Sten (Thomas Orredson from Crimes of Passion) tries to make a Swedish man of him - in an entirely non-sexist way.
Geoff and Linda start to plan their wedding with the questionable help of fellow ex-pat divorcee Ian (Danny Robins), Linda's brother, depressive Goth Anders (award winning stand-up Fredrik Andersson) and fellow immigrant, Kurdish Dane Soran (Farshad Kolghi of The Killing). In this first episode, the Andersson family take Geoff on a road trip to Stockholm.
The series also features guest appearances from Krister Henriksson (the original Wallander) and André Wickström (TV Comedian and actor) as Linda's ex-boyfriend and a Viking called Lars.
Writer Danny Robins is the co-creator of Lenny Henry's sitcom Rudy's Rare Records.
