Trivia

Hollywood wanted to make a remake of this film. Kjell Sundvall was positive to this as long as it was a "First Blood" type of film. But the producers who wanted to buy the rights wanted to make it about cowboys in the Nevada dessert, shooting horse for fun. Kjell Sundavall didn't sell the rights after he heard this. See more »

The best thriller i have seen

I dont know how many times i have seen this movie. Its so great. Its about a small society where everyone know each other and protect each other (in this case not a good thing). Its also about a will to do the right thing even if it will make you a loner and enemy to nearly everyone you know. And all this in a beautiful north of Sweden. This movie can be seen as a modern nordic Western movie.

And eventhough someone wouldnt like the movie you can always listen to the beautiful movietheme who sets the sence of melancholy right from the start.
