During all his years as the author of the popular books about “Sune”, “Bert”, “Håkan The Troublemaker” and many others, Sören Olsson also has been writing the script to those of his films that have been filmed. It started in 1988 with the TV series “Fixing firm Happy Hat” for Swedish Television and up until today when he has written the scripts for both films about Sune and completely independent manuscript orders, such as “Ibrakadabra – I wish I was Zlatan”.

To tell stories is the most important thing for Sören Olsson, and he thinks it’s as fun and inspiring to write for movies, television or the theater scene, as for reading kids in all ages. He finds inspiration in human psychology, and is burning to tell stories about how people interact with each other and how we deal with situations that arise in life.

Sören Olsson says that an important part of working well as a scriptwriter is to be responsive to the ideas of others, and to relinquish all kinds of prestige, to achieve as good end-production as possible. It’s not whose idea it is that’s important – but whose idea works best to get the script as interesting as possible.
