2021 might be the year of the True-Crime documentary. HBO Max already has a couple great ones in it’s stable with the documentaries like Heaven’s Gate: The Cult of Cults. Now they’re bringing the story of a 2004 murder in Sweden. Pray, Obey, Kill is a gripping five-part documentary series from Anton Berg and Martin Johnson. Directed by Henrik Georgsson, it revisits a complex murder case. Unlike their other documentary series, they’re changing up the release schedule. The first two episodes debut on April 12th on HBO and HBO Max.

Here’s the synopsis of what happened on that frightful January night in 2004.

On a cold night in January 2004, gunshots rang out across the remote Swedish village, Knutby, home to a small, tight-knit Pentecostal congregation, leaving a young woman murdered in her bed and her neighbor suffering from multiple bullet wounds. Attention soon turned towards the community – the victim’s husband, also the sect’s pastor, the victim’s 26-year-old nanny, and the sect’s leader known as “The Bride of Christ.”

What follows is a strange case of text messages from God, confessions, and a meticulous re-examination of the case. That’s exactly what this documentary wants to do. The story goes far, far deeper than you’d imagine, so this is surely a docu-series that you don’t want to miss.

It’s one of the most confounding crimes in Swedish history, so we’ll all be waiting with baited breath on how it resolves itself with this doc.

So, what do you think of Pray, Obey, Kill?
