In-demand chart: Sweden (September 18-24, 2016)

TBI-In-Demand-header-Sweden_700x220The big surprise in our Swedish In-demand top ten charts with Parrot Analytics is that there is no gentle British dramas present. In a territory that has been an avid buyer of series such as Marple, Doc Martin and Midsomer Murders, our results perhaps suggest those searching online comprise a primarily young adult demographic.

A British series does penetrate the overall chart, however. In seventh place with 598,073 average daily demand expressions is The Last Kingdom, which the BBC had coproduced with US cable net BBC America.

BBC America has stepped out for the second season of the series, a drama set in England in 9AD and with more than few Game of Thrones tones, with Netflix now attached as a coproducer on season two.

Leading the way in our overall chart, with 1.184 million average daily demand expressions, is HBO’s fantasy drama Game of Thrones. The series was ahead of Pretty Little Liars, which was in second with 844,019.

Suits makes another strong appearance in third, with Robot continuing to find fans with a fourth-placed finish. Comedy Solsidan, which plays on commercial network TV4, is the most in-demand local production, coming in at five with 704,709 daily demands.

South Park, which is now in its 20th season, rounds out the chart with Fear the Walking Dead, American Horror Story and Stranger Things placing tenth.

Stranger Things is way out ahead in the digital chart, however. With nearly 500,000 daily demand expressions, it is well over 150,000 ahead of the second-placed Orange is the New Black, once again confirming the huge impact the series has had since launching in the summer.

Narcos is in third spot, just behind OITNB and well ahead of House of Cards, Making a Murderer and the recently-cancelled Bloodline in fourth, fifth and sixth respectively.

BoJack Horseman, Marco Polo, The Killing and Jessica Jones round out the list.
