This is a list of all movie and TV adaptations involving the legendary Swedish agent Carl Hamilton (code name Coq Rouge), created by Swedish author Jan Guillou.
Unfortunately, the original books have not been filmed in chronological order or even adapted individually. Thus my recommendation is to ignore the release year completely.
Watch the movies and TV series in the order listed below for the most chronologically correct experience!

The 6 episode TV miniseries "Kvällspressen" (1992) involves him rather indirectly since it deals more with other aspects of the storylines surrounding Hamilton prior to "Vendetta".

The movie "Vendetta" (1995) was broadcast on Swedish television as an extended miniseries version the same year, and the movie "Hamilton" (1998) was extended in a similar fashion in 2001. For some reason "Vendetta" has only one IMDb entry while "Hamilton" has two. Catch the extended versions if possible.

To confuse things further... "Hamilton: I nationens intresse" (2012) does not adapt the story from the book with same name, but tells a new story much later in Hamilton's life with the intent to converge his storyline with the spin-off series about his ex-wife; Ewa Tanguy. This is subsequently done in "Hamilton: Men inte om det gäller din dotter" (2012) which actually is a book adaptation.

"Hamilton 3: I hennes majestäts tjänst" (2016) was canceled. No plans to revive the project are known.

A new TV series titled simply "Hamilton" seems to be in the making for a possible 2019 release. No details available yet (as of march 2018).
