Before he brought his enigmatic presence to American audiences in AMC’s The Killing and the recent remake of Robocop, Swedish actor Joel Kinnaman found stardom in Europe thanks to the smash hit Easy Money. The 2010 Swedish crime drama, adapted from a novel by Jens Lapidus, cast Kinnaman as Jw, an intelligent but misguided business student from the wrong side of the tracks who becomes a drug smuggler in order to afford the wealthy lifestyle of his upper-class peers. The diverse group of criminals he gets mixed up with includes Chilean Jorge (Matias Varela), Serbian Mrado (Dragomir Mrsic) and Lebanese Mahmoud (Fares Fares). The first film ends with Jw in prison, but that doesn't prevent him from getting into further trouble in Easy Money: Hard to Kill, the film’s 2012 sequel.
