PlotEdit

The series centers around distinguished Fredrik Segemyhr, the owner of the apartment, portrayed by Johan Ulveson. The other three main characters are his girlfriend Cecilia Jansson, "Cilla", portrayed by Sussie Eriksson, Fredrik's friend and casual labourer Jan-Olof, portrayed by Lennart Jähkel and taxi driver Anton, portrayed by Olle Sarri.

Fredrik is a relevantly ego-centric former top executive within economy who has happened to have lost his job. He himself refuses to admit his unemployment and states affirmatively that he is "between two jobs". He is feverishly trying to return into work life and on his way back he tries to get both top positions but also somewhat unconventional jobs. Among other things he tries to become a sports commentator, art intermediary and selling Christmas magazines, but he fails everything he tries. Fredrik is during the course of the show (with few exceptions) together with Cilla, a relatively normal assistant nurse in her 30s. Because of Fredrik's unemployment he can not pay his rent and is forced to bring in two lodgers, Jan-Olof and Anton. Jan-Olof is a sex-obsessed casual labourer in his 50s without any big plans of settling down. Anton is a shy and insecure guy in his early twenties who drives a taxi but has dreams of becoming famous in one way or another. He only lives with Fredrik because he can't stand living with his mother and can't afford a place of his own. In the first episode, Fredrik, Cilla and Jan-Olof are already living in the apartment, while Anton moves in on an offer from Jan-Olof in the middle of the first episode.
