He got practical film experience between 1981 and 1992 working as an assistant director to his father, actor and director Hans Alfredson. He gave his own directorial debut in 1992 directing an episode of the Swedish crime series "Kvällspressen". The following year, he realized his first feature film, the mystery thriller "Mannen på Balkongen" ("The Man on the Balcony", SE/DE 1993), for which he received the Swedish Film Award 'Guldbagge Award'. The thriller "Tic Tac" (SE 1997) won Alfredson a Guldbagge Award for Best Director and was awarded further prizes at several festivals. In addition, Alfredson over the years directed several TV films and various episodes of TV series.
