Swedish actress Katia Winter is joining Season 7 of Showtime's "Dexter," according to TVLine.

Production started on the new season this month in Los Angeles.
The series, which premieres its seventh season Sept. 30, also stars C.S. Lee, James Remar, Desmond Harrington, Lauren Vélez, David Zayas, James Remar.
