Extremely witty, amusing mix of cop movie and comedy with loads of charm...
23 April 2002 | by (Åby, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Swedish entertainment at its best is this early 80's yarn of the kidnapping of the prime minister's daughter and the mishaps on both sides of the law leading up to its delightful finale. Great mix of comedy and action with charm, wit and memorable characters, including a hilarious G'sta Ekman as an asthmatic kidnapper in a Donald Duck mask disguise; rent and enjoy!
