Storyline

The movie begins with the Jönsson gang making a minor burglary. It goes wrong and the gang leader, Sickan, gets caught. After he has spent 10 months in jail, Vanheden and Rocky come to welcome him when he's released. But he doesn't take notice of them, and he's picked up by the mysterious banker Wall-Enberg Jr. instead. He wants Sickan to perform a burglary in Switzerland, in order to retrieve the famous Bedford Diamonds. Sickan does this but is fooled by Wall-Enberg and nearly gets caught. When he returns to Sweden and re-unites with his old gang members, he's set on revenge, both physically and psychologically... Written by Anders E Lundin

Masterful!
17 October 2007 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Varning för jönssonligan.. if anyone from the USA would ask me what Swedish movie is the best, i'd say the Jonssonleague movies. All those movies are very special and each has a great amount of comedy! The first one is my personal favorite! I saw this movie when i was 3-4 years old.. and i LOVED IT! I have never stopped watching the movies because they never really get boring. Every scene in the movie have a bunch of comedy.

The music made by Ragnar Grippe is perfect, my favorite is the main theme and the intro music.

If you haven't seen it yet,... go check it out because this movie is absolutely fantastic!
