Storyline

As always, Sickan has come up with a new plan. This time he wants to rob the IKEA furniture store. During their nightly break-in Sickan discovers that the store is used as a secret smuggling central for sending American computers to the Soviet Union. The computers are picked up by Soviet submarines sneaking into the Swedish archipelago. Naturally, it is their arch enemy Wall-Enberg who is behind all of this. Written by Mattias Thuresson

Funny, but nothing special.
20 January 2001 | by (Haninge, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best Jönsson-ligan movies and it is quite fun. In the beginning of the film, the gang breaks in to the famous furniture market IKEA. The movie is, as all the Jönsson-ligan films, just a funny and pretty smart movie that can be seen at any time to make you feel good.
