Re the Swedish TV Hamlet: Don't know where you can purchase it, but you can
visit it at the Folger, if you have a chance. And you're right: it's quite
terrific, from its insinuations of Gertrude's complicity in the murder, to
court business conducted while the nightshirted king washes up after royal
sex, to direct eye-contact between Hamlet and Claudius in "Now might I do it
pat," to the growing and almost insurmountable weariness of the Prince, to a
very unsettling final scene in which Horatio tries to tell Hamlet's story to
folks who are walking away and ignoring him, already entirely attached to
Fortinbras (shades of Lee Blessing's *Fortinbras*). Don't have director and
cast in front of me, but I'll put it up later if no one else does.

RE: Swedish production of the haunted Dane
 
I didn't see it, but the production of *Hamlet* referred to was
directed by Ingmar Bergman and was presented live at (I believe) the
Brooklyn Academy of Music.
