The character of Ove was originally meant to drown as the main characters decided not to interfere, passingly allowing him to die. This was ultimately considered too dark and was never shot. See more »
In Solsidan we follow the lives of various characters living in the posh neighbourhood with the same name. We have the stereotypical rich people, Mickan and Fredde, the kooky weirdos Ove and Annette and the "hippies" Anna and Alex. Throughout the show we get to see the hilarious interactions the characters have with each other and other people.
Alex is hilariously awkward and anxious, which constantly gets him into trouble. Together with his slightly hippie wife Anna they are the misfits in the fancy neighbourhood.
Mickan, however, fits right in. She doesn't work, wears designer clothes and is obsessed with seeming perfect, especially in front of her "friends" who are constantly competing about who seems to have the most perfect life. Fredde is impulsive and obsessed with having all the newest gadgets. Ove is the annoying neighbour that you always try to avoid, but somehow always run into at the worst times. This mix of people, combined with the setting and the social commentary results in a great comedy series, appreciated all over Sweden. You don't have to be Swedish to get into it though, because it brings up topics and jokes that can be appreciated universally. A guaranteed laugh!
