The True Story of a Swedish Detective
Inspector Fighting Prostitution
Detective inspector Simon Häggström is head of the Stockholm Police Prositution Unit. Everyday, he meets those who inhabit the shadowy underbelly of Stockholm the prostituted women, and men, who try to keep their business hidden and the punters who at all cost want to avoid being caught. Even though Sweden has a strict anti-prostitution law, business is thriving.
Shadows Law tells the true stories of the people Simon Häggström and his co-workers encounter every day; young girls facing dangers they did not foresee, seven foreign women working and living together in a one bedroom apartement, Lovisa, born into a life of drugs and prostitution, and of course, the men who buy sex. These are their stories as they have never been told before.
