Synopsis

THE PERFECT PATIENT is the captivating story about the biggest legal scandal in Swedish history, the story about the reporter who questioned an entire legal system, a journalistic thriller about a man who sacrificed everything in his search for truth. Hannes Råstam was dedicated to proving the innocence of Thomas Quick and unmask the legal chaos which sentenced Quick to a life in psychiatric prison. However, no one was interested in exonerating and freeing the worst serial killer in Sweden, a cannibalistic rapist who had been sentenced for eight murders and confessed to another twenty-five. This tale lays out a puzzle for the viewer to put together as the incredible story behind the Thomas Quick case is laid bare piece by piece. The audience will be continuously captivated by secret sources and one person's resilient sense of justice all the way until the overwhelming ending.
