Storyline

In Stockholm, on St. Lucy's feast day, a bandit daringly robs a crowded post office. Within a fortnight, two witnesses are dead. Two cops from vice squad, Johansson and Jarnebring, who were the first to the crime scene, pursue all leads and identify a suspect, an arrogant member of the elite secret police, a man assigned to guard the country's Minister of Justice. Just as the beat cops think they've tightened the noose around the suspect, loose ends appear, witnesses lose their certainty, alibis crop up, and even the cops doubt what they've seen. Who's protecting the suspect and why? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Carl-Gustaf Lindstedt was supposed to play Dahlgren, but because of his health he was replaced by Ernst Günther. See more »

Goofs

During the car chase, one close-up shows Johansson's hair flowing in the wind, revealing that it has been shot through an open window on the car's passenger side. People do not otherwise tend to drive with their windows open in Swedish sub-zero temperature winters - especially not when speeding. See more »

Quotes

Inspector Johansson: [after Jarnebring has narrowly avoided a head-on collision with a lorry during the car chase, having tried to overtake a few cars but instead ending up on the other side of the road, unable to get back because of the traffic behind the lorry] I get so fed up with you, Jarnis, was it worth this? There are, like, ten cars coming after it now!
Inspector Jarnebring: Ah well, we're alive, aren't we?

intriguing, engrossing thriller
12 September 1999 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

An intriguing, engrossing thriller with agile camerawork and interesting characters. And it all takes place in faraway Sweden, which, for some of us, is unfamiliar and fascinating. Fans of foreign films will enjoy this and I think it would appeal as well to those who don't often see foreign films.
