Is Before We Die based on a true story?
Before We Die is not based on a true story.

What is Before We Die about?
She links the killing to the Mimicas, a family who run a successful restaurant in Bristol.
Hannah’s son – Christian – works in the restaurant, implicating him in the murder case and leaving the detective in an awkward situation.
Discussing her role with the Radio Times, Lesley said: “I just thought that Hannah was a really interesting, complicated character and that there was a real opportunity to be involved in something which explored a mother and son relationship but in a really unique way.
“Both Hannah and Christian are at moments in their lives where both of them are lost and both of them are trying to get back on track.
“Both of them need one another very badly.”
Lesley also discussed her love for the original Swedish drama and her desire to be involved in the remake.
She said: “We’ve kind of taken inspiration from that [the original] and, you know, nod our head to them and then have made something which is different because the sort of sensibility of being British characters is immediately different to that whole Swedish vibe.
“But looks-wise I think what we all want is a show that doesn’t look like a UK police drama.
“We wanted it to be very rooted in the UK but look like a UK that’s dark and a bit lost – like these characters.”
