Intrigo: Death of an Author is a 2018 German-Swedish-American mystery crime drama film directed by Daniel Alfredson and starring Ben Kingsley and Benno Fürmann. The film is based on a series of novellas by Håkan Nesser. It is the first in a trilogy of films.


David finds the author Alex Henderson living alone on a Greek island. David tells him the story of his novel which interweaves the story of his own life. Nothing is made very clear as the film switches back and forth from the conversation to the plot of the novel and the parallels to David's life.
