His interest in acting started when working as an extra in Ingmar Bergman’s staging of William Shakespeare’s “King Lear.”
In the early 1990s, Mikael starred in a popular TV series, “Rederiet” (“The Shipping Company.”) He has also starred in other series such as “Storstad,” “Den vite riddare,” “Anna Holt- Polis” and in “Medicinmannen.” Mikael also has an extended theatre background and collaborated successfully with director Thorsten Flinck on several Swedish productions such as “Three Sisters” and “Death of a Salesman” at the Plaza Theatre, “Mr. Puntila and His Man Matti,” “The Good Person of Szechwan” and “Long Day’s Journey Into Night” at the Royal Dramatic Theatre.

In 1997, Persbrandt starred for the first time as the tough detective, Gunvald Larsson, the role that ultimately became his major break-through. “Beck” was not only a major hit in Sweden but in Germany as well – and now consists of 24 theatrical and television movies based on the characters created by authors Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöo.
Mikael’s other work includes starring roles in the Swedish films “The Hypnotist”, the “Hamilton” series, “Nagon annanstans i Sverige” (for which he received a 2011 Guldbagge nomination), “Stockholm East,” and “Day and Night.” He has starred in IFC Films’ “Everlasting Moments,” for which he earned the 2009 Guldbagge Award for Best Actor.
