Annika Bengtzon: Crime Reporter - Studio Sex (Video ) - IMDb
Annika Bengtzon is a fictional character in a Scandinavian noir book and film series created by the Swedish journalist, publisher and crime writer Liza Marklund. With the Annika Bengtzon series, Marklund introduced a female tabloid journalist as the protagonist, in a genre where the main characters had often been men. Current events, like political scandals or women's issues, are often intertwined with the plot, or introduced in subplots. Alternately described as "courageous and compassionate" as well as "dark" and possessing a "destructive streak within her",  she is a career woman juggling a husband and children while facing her employer's tough colleagues. Working as a crime reporter, Bengtzon stumbles into one dangerous situation after another. She has obvious similarities to the author, with Liza Marklund herself pictured on the book covers.
When freelance reporter Annika Bengtzon gets a call that a murdered woman's body is lying in a Stockholm graveyard, she knows immediately that this story might be her ticket to the permanent job she craves. Annika's position at the big-city tabloid is tenuous and her mother and boyfriend want her to come back to the local paper she has worked for, to stay near home and settle down. As she pursues the murderer, battling the male-dominated cliques of the newsroom, Annika must also overcome her own inexperience and the instincts that will draw her much too close to the story. Studio Sex inhabits the same cutthroat world of the tabloid reporter, rendered with precision and intelligence by Sweden's most popular novelist. But Studio Sex also introduces fascinating new terrain for most American readers, that of a political scandal in one of Europe's most solidly Social Democratic welfare states.
