Mini Bio (1)
This Swedish director has since the late 1960s been one of the most influential directors in Norway and Sweden. Best known for adapting three popular British sitcoms for a Scandinavian audience.
His most famous achievement was turning Ray Galton and Alan Simpson's "Hancock's Half Hour" into "Fleksnes fataliteter" (1972-2002), without a doubt the most popular comedy series in Scandinavian history, turning Norway's Rolv Wesenlund into a household name throughout Scandinavia. The show quickly resulted in a feature film written by Hermansson and it's star Wesenlund. The movie, Den siste Fleksnes (1974), was a box office success that ended in a hilarious final scene where Wesenlund's character clashed with then international movie star Julie Ege playing herself.
Bo Hermansson ('Bosse' among friends) enjoyed similar success turning Galton and Simpson's "Steptoe and Son" into "Albert & Herbert" in 1974, and Woolfe and Chesney's "The Rag Trade" into "Fredrikssons fabrikk" in 1990.
Hermansson, known for his long hair, beard and glasses, has also directed several plays.
