On a freezing cold night in January 2004, gunshots rang out across the sleepy Swedish village of Knutby. A young woman was murdered, and her neighbour suffered multiple gunshot wounds. The world’s attention turned towards the tight-knit Pentecostal congregation and the ensuing court case became an international sensation.
In Pray, Obey, Kill acclaimed journalists Martin Johnson and Anton Berg, alongside Director Henrik Georgsson (The Bridge), seek to shed new light on what really happened in the village of Knutby. The journalists investigate new angles of the case, accessing material that has never been revealed before and conducting exclusive interviews with people who are now talking after years of silence.

Executive producers for HBO Europe are Hanne Palmquist, Hanka Kastelicová and Antony Root. It is produced by Warner Bros ITVP Sweden for HBO Europe.
