Jacob Groth

Share This Artist



Jacob Groth is perhaps most famous for his score work on the film trilogy based on Swedish crime author Stieg Larssons Millennium series of 3 best-selling novels ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ (nominated for Best Score at the European Film Awards), ‘The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest’ and ‘The Girl Who Played With Fire’. Groth was born in 1951 in Copenhagen and still lives there, sharing his time between Denmark and Los Angeles where, in recent years, he has scored projects such as the CBS drama series ‘Unforgettable’, (a series that, aided by Groth’s atmospheric score, went on to run for 4 seasons and for which Jacob was awarded Best Music Score at the ASCAP Awards). He has also completed work on the 2nd season of the NBC supernatural drama series “Midnight, Texas”.

His first major work was on the Søren Kragh-Jacobsen film debut ‘Vil du se min smukke navle?’. Jacob's working relationship with Kragh-Jacobsen led to a long period of collaboration. He also built an ongoing creative relationship with Director Rumle Hammerich which included the movie ‘Otto er et næsehorn’ in 1983 and ran up to ‘Headhunter’ in 2009. In 2012 he teamed up once again with Millennium director Niels Arden Oplev to score the major Hollywood production ‘Dead Man Down’, starring Colin Farrell. In 2014 Groth worked on the action thriller ‘Skin Trade’ produced by and starring Dolph Lundgren.

Jacob has excelled in his Nordic TV work, from the late 90s watershed Danish drama series ‘Taxa’ and ‘Unit One’ (‘Rejseholdet’) to his Emmy Award-winning work on the early life of Hans Christian Andersen, ‘Young Andersen’. He has also added his unique compositional style to 2 seasons of the hit Swedish crime series ‘Modus’.

Recent projects include the crime-thriller series ‘Wisting’ based on the award-winning series of books by former Norwegian homicide detective Jørn Lier Horst and Danish-French tv-series "DNA" starring Anders W. Berthelsen and Charlotte Rampling.
