The Two Faces of Benny from Abba

Episode 2 of 4

Angstrom and Mina try to find out who tried to frame him for the death of Councillor Birgid Lundstrom, a trail which leads them straight to the door of Benny from Abba.

Matthew Holness stars as Knut Ångström, a brooding, alcoholic, maverick Swedish detective from the tough streets of Oslo, in a Scandinavian detective yarn adapted from the bestselling Ångström trilogy by Martin English (writing as Bjorgen Swedenssonsson).

Following the death of his wife, Ångström is posted to the Njalsland peninsula where he becomes embroiled in a labyrinthine murder (or possibly not-murder) case which bears an eerie similarity to the Askeladden killings - a case from his distant past.

In episode 2, Ångström and Mina try to find out who tried to frame him for the death of Councillor Birgid Lundstrom, a trail which leads them straight to the door of Benny from ABBA. But when that door opens, why is Benny from ABBA now Mexican?

A new comedy series by writers of the Ladybird Books for Grown Ups, Charlie Brooker's ...Wipe, That Mitchell and Webb Look and A Touch of Cloth.
