About - Quicksand. A school shooting takes place at Djursholm senior high school. At the age of 18, Maja Norberg is arrested and suspected of murder. The protagonist admits the murder at an early stage but denies the crime – the trial is rather about why the murder was committed than whether it was committed. Like in the novel, the story is told from the main character's perspective, with events flashing back and forth between the present day and her memories of events that led up to the shooting. The six-episode series answers the main question concerning the extent of her complicity: As the only student left alive after the shooting, did she conspire with her boyfriend who planned the attack or is she an innocent bystander? Fagerman, himself, dies in the shooting leaving Maja as the sole focus of international media attention. Quicksand is not based on a real-life event, but the story was written to reflect real-life class inequalities, which its creators saw in Sweden. GoSee : netflix.com//80211703
