I know what you're thinking and now you get your head out of the gutter!

Swedish Dicks is a new half hour series  starring Peter Stormare (Fargo, American Gods) that has already aired to rave reviews in Sweden and is ready to leave it's mark on North America. 

Co-created by Stormare, Swedish Dicks is a half-hour comedy about an aging ex-stuntman (Peter Stormare) stuck in the past and an overly optimistic Swedish DJ (Johan Glans) stuck in the digital world. Together they get unstuck by forming the private detective firm Swedish Dicks, solving some of the strangest and wildest cases L.A. has ever seen.

The 10-episode first season features an array of guest stars, including Traci Lords (Cry-Baby, Melrose Place), Margaret Cho (Fashion Police, Drop Dead Diva), Anthony LaPaglia (Without a Trace, Frasier), Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight, Suits) and guest star Keanu Reeves (John Wick, The Matrix).

Peter Stormare  has been making films for more than 20 years and it's safe to say every character he's played is memorable. The 63-year-old Swedish actor has been proving himself an asset to the film world ever since he played a quiet, sociopathic killer who fed Steve Buscemi into a woodchipper in Joel and Ethan Coen’s Oscar-winning 1996 neo-noir Fargo.

Already a celebrated actor, director, producer and playwright in his native Sweden, Stormare is known for playing many mean-spirited villains, intelligent bad guys and strange foreigners in everything from Armageddon, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, and Minority Report, among others and in TV, as John Abruzzi in the FOX hit TV-Series Prison Break, Berlin in The Blacklist and Chernobog in Starz' new original series American Gods

Traci Lords is impossible to categorize. Kevin Smith called her an American Pop Icon. John Waters called her a sexual terrorist. She has appeared in dozens of films and television shows from Roger Corman’s Not Of This Earth, Cry Baby, Blade, to Zack and Miri Make a Porno and Excision; from Melrose Place, Roseanne, Will & Grace and Gilmore Girls to series regular roles on NBC’s Profiler and Syfy’s First Wave. Her autobiography Traci Lords Underneath it All (HarperCollins) was a NY Times bestseller.

I spoke with Peter Stormare and co-star Traci Lords via satellite from Los Angeles about working on this obscure and entertaining new series which Stormare describes as a cross between Twin Peaks and Monty Python's Flying Circus! CLICK BELOW
