Snapphanar (miniseries)

Snapphanar is a Swedish miniseries directed by Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein that aired in three parts on Sveriges Television during Christmas 2006. It is a historical drama about the Snapphane peasant rebel movement that fought against the Swedish rule of Scania in the 17th century. The "Snapphanar" was a rebellion of those people, who fought secretly for Denmark during 1660-1700.

The miniseries was criticised by historians due to a perceived lack of historical accuracy. The Scanian nationalist attitudes portrayed in the series did not exist in the 17th century, and the term snapphane, which is used for self-identification in the series, was in fact a derogatory term used by Swedes.
