One of the funniest Swedish films ever!
11 July 2002 | by (Viken, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Varning för Jönssonligan was, and still is, one of my favorite movies. The thing that separates it from other movies are the wonderful characters especially "Sickan" played by Gösta Ekman. I recommend it to everyone
