Once it was titled “Viking Saga: Rune of the Dead” but closing in on the release the film have a new title. The official title will be “The Huntress – Rune of the Dead”.
An North American trailer, with focus on the more scary parts of the film, has been edited with some (mostly in the begining) of my score. The Score is completed and it ended up being over 80 minutes of Music! I am both the Composer and one of the Producers of the film that will have a US in the fall.
#ingenskitiminkropp is the hashtag and also name of the short film I produced together with Richard Jarnhed for The Swedish Budo & Martial Arts Federation back in 2016. The film, which is a drama documentary, has now been released. You can see the film HERE.I also composed the Music for the film.
As I write this I have won 20 international awards as a Film Composer and Film Producer. And also been nominated or a finalist in 11 international festivals. I have also gathered (with some help) qoutes from Reviews and accomplishments ranging from Wired Magazine Ennio Morricone, Oliver Stone, Richard Jarnhed, John Malkovich, Scott Oden and many more.

I have completed the music to the USA/Swedish feature film “Rune Of The Dead”. It is a strong soundtrack that I composed with mostly inspiration from the viking era. To my aid as a musician and additional composer I had the Riksspeleman (a generally recognized badge of mastery for Swedish folk musicians) Per Runberg. I also took in several other musicians. The acclaimed singer songwriter Mohalvyr sings the theme Viverja, a song built on a theme created by Producer/Script writer Faravid af Ugglas, which plays a pivotal role.
I had a blast composing the music to this score as the director/producer/editor/script writer Rasmus Tirzitis and me truly found a unique sound which blend together the different styles of the film. I also had the oppurtunity to re use a cue that I for a long time have had the intention of revisit. Thank you Rasmus for this journey. I also would like to thank Per, Faravid and the sound and music mixer Eki Jokisalo for this collaboration.
Shoutout to the cast and crew and last but not least my musicians :
I am fortunate to have worked diligently and continuously with composing music for film, tv and other projects (mostly before I switched gears to composing for tv, film and games, 2009). In the picture above are some of the projects I have composed for during the last 19 years. As a film composer I have worked professionally for 10 years now, my first album came out 19 years ago (in November).
I am now celebrating 6 years as a Film Producer and I am 100 % sure I will never stop composing music. Right now, I am about to finish my score for the “Viking Saga: Rune of the Dead”.
The Swedish podcast Musik i Film (Music in Film) has the same name as the interest org. I am chariman and one of the founders of.
