"Rederiet" is one of the most successful and longest running series in Swedish television history. The story is about a shipping company which conducts passenger traffic on the Baltic sea between Stockholm in Sweden and Åbo in Finland. The story takes place both in Stockholm (mostly in the office of the company) and on board the ship m/s Freja. The company (Dahlénrederiet) has for decades been run by the Dahlén family. But there are other people who try to gain control over the company, which leads to a constant struggle for the power. We also get to follow the life on board the ship, where people fall in love and break up. There are also struggles for higher positions on the ship and some people use their position to make some extra money. And in the middle of all that, there may be troubles with the passengers or with the ship which have to be solved. There will be terrible accidents, deaths, murders, smuggling, theft, infidelity, arson, rape, drugs, insanity and many other terrible... Written by Jens Andersson

One of the best
13 June 2006 | by cijtwzhhhSee all my reviews

Rederiet (The Shipping Company)is one of Swedens most popular soap-opera ever. It's always been a great script with lots of action, love and normal life and relationships. I think that especially the way many of the characters feels like normal but still interesting people is the base for why lots of people sat down every week for ten years and followed this series.

The story is about all the crew at the ship Freja and the Dhalens-family that owns the company. Some of the most popular characters is Joker(Johannes Brost) the bartender, Uno (Hans Engström) the strange and funny guy and Tony (Kenneth Söderman) the directors son that is always in some problem.
