Tomas Norström 1965-2021
Actor Tomas Norström’s long film debuted in 1976 in Marianne Ahrens Far away and close and then did a hundred roles in both film and television, and more on the theater stage.
For the big audience he became known as Ove in Kjell Sundvalls Hunters (1996), and soon afterward people like Olle, one of the northern Bothnian brothers Marklund in Pistvakt. A comedy success from the Pistol Theater became both TV series and later long films directed by Stephan Apelgren.
On film was Tomas Norström’s man, but in the black and white detective Hammar (1992) he made a lead role as Brother Hammar, a 35-year-old man who after a wet shot is early retired, suffers insomnia and is obsessed with kiosk detective. A very hard-boiled movie noir in the Midsummer Wreath was one of several convenient films he made together with Håkan Alexandersson and Carl Johan De Geer.
One of Norström’s best roles was in a Norwegian-Swedish film: Bent Hamer’s low-melted subtle Psalms from the kitchen (2003) where Norströms plays it at the beginning very strict observer Folke, sent to a small Norwegian society to implement the Swedish public health accident even on single Norwegian men.
Most loved, he was for the role of the not too competent Police Chief who ′′ helps ′′ Lasse-Maja’s detective agency solve crimes. He was the warm heart in the suite – the only actor who was in all TV series and long films. The last time we got to see him was in Moa Gammels LasseMajas Detective Agency – the train robber’s secret, which came last year.
