Fallet is a financial thriller set in Stockholm about a man who seeks to revenge the banker and real estate agent that left him homeless when the real estate market crashed.
Who is Micke?
MICKE is an average guy who works with IT. He goes through the motions of his life, but something is tugging at him. He knows he wants things, he has a life design but he doesn’t know how to put it into action. Until he meets Lotta.
What does he want:
He wants material security. He wants to climb the social ladder. He wants to be accepted and does not want to be alone.
What is the catalyst:
He meets Lotta, they fall in love. He wants to impress her so that she will stay in his life. Real estate is the leverage. They buy an apartment together. But Micke wants more.
What is at stake for Micke?
Micke falls down a rabbit hole when he becomes personally bankrupt. He loses his mind, his home and family. Isolation, an outcast of society and life are at stake.
What is the central conflict?
Greed, societal gaps, a housing market that is premised on high interest and debt leverage and the lives of people who are powerless when external shocks happen to this system.
Fredric Ahlseus - bank loans officer is one of Micke's antagonists. He wants to sign to sign up as many loans as possible for his bank to earn the interest on the mortgages. The Stockholm housing market is at a boom in the 2000s. Change of laws in the borrowing system is making it possible for banks to take risks that they were not able to in the late 1990's, when Sweden was on the brink of a state collapse. Fredric represents the system of the housing loan market and precarious risk based on a financial system that is vulnerable to external shocks that can trigger banks loans to default.
Morgan Ehnrnell - real estate agent. Morgan Ehrnell represents the real estate system. He is the sales agent that keeps feeding Mikael options on how to maximise his through new apartments that are getting built. "Buy now and borrow on the collateral and just keep moving the interest." It's not illegal, everyone is doing it until it no longer offers to profit on the premium. When that happens, the chips start to fall. It's a risky business.
