Sebastian Bergman is a Swedish police procedural television series, based on two novels by duo Hjorth Rosenfeldt. It stars Rolf Lassgård as the eponymous hero, a criminal profiler with personal problems. It was originally broadcast on Swedish television in 2010, and a subtitled version was shown on the UK's BBC Four in 2012.
