Bonnier criticises lack of incentives for Swedish filming, Netflix continues original productions

Thursday 11 April 2019 | 14:16 CET | News

She said neighbouring countries with such incentives have been able to raise the quality of their output and simplify production. Sweden is one of the few countries in the EU to have no such scheme.
