Great Swedish whodunit thriller.
14 January 2015 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

80-year-old millionaire Verner Vade lives in a giant house with his relatives.He's mean and somewhat of a dictator,which leads his family and everyone else to hate him.His nephew-in-law is a psychopath,his attorney (married to his sister-in-law)tries to swindle him,his wife is cheating on him,he doesn't approve of his daughter's fiancé and someone is raping the maid.When it's known that Vade is going to donate his fortune to charity leaving pretty much nothing to the family members,it gets even worse.Most of them,if not all,wants him dead.One night Verner is attacked and disappears...Great Swedish whodunit thriller with splendid Gothic atmosphere and a bit of quite tasteful nudity.The scene of the doll burned at the stake is especially bizarre.I have seen Arne Mattsson's "Mannequin In Red",but after watching "Morianerna" I have to check his other well-written crime movies soon!8 bodies in the lake out of 10.
