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

The title of the book that the film is based on is "Grisfesten" (The Pig Feast), but director Bo Widerberg changed the title to avoid confusion with "Sällskapsresan", a very light-hearted comedy with the tagline "Finns det svenskt kaffe på grisfesten?" (Will there be any Swedish coffee at the pig feast?) See more »

Goofs

The film shows it to be completely dark outside when Johansson is celebrating Christmas with his son and his ex-wife; however, when he leaves, they are still watching the Disney Christmas Special which airs every Christmas in Sweden at 15.00 CET. There is still daylight in the Stockholm area by then. See more »

Quotes

Dahlgren: That's not my headache. I'm not your boss and for that I am grateful.
Inspector Jarnebring: So are we.
Dahlgren: Good. Than the feeling is mutual.

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.
