Gösta Ekman and Björn Gustafson as crooks together a couple of years before the concept of "Jönssonligan". And great comedy star Brasse Brännström as a secret police, who meets up with the brain behind the crooks in the hilarious grand finale, taking place at the old long lost, since destroyed, train station at Huddinge (a southern suburb of Stockholm, most known for its well renowned second division hockey team, original club of NHL pros Michael Nylander and Jan Mertzig - AND furthermore Peter Forsberg made his senior hockey debut with MoDo meeting Huddinge in their home arena).
The movie has some absolutely marvelous scenes, not the least those where Gustafson and Ekman argue heavily disguised in Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck masks. A large part is also played by the notorious old beaten up Toyota Crown, driven first by Gustafson, and later refusing to start on Ekman, when Gustafson´s part "Bosse" is to be.... well, make sure you get to see this classic movie, and see for yourself!
