Great Swedish detective/conspiracy theory story
10 February 2003 | by (Northern California) – See all my reviews

This is a drama about an assassination conspiracy that starts in South Africa that finds its way to a countryside police detective. A woman is found murdered in a rural Swedish house. The murder is not the mystery, the target of the assassin is.

The film was rather low budget and the editing is a little hard to follow sometimes. It is especially hard to tell sometimes what country you are in if you only speak English like myself. The movie is subtitled in English and as you cross borders in the movie the change in languages are not always good clues as to where you are. Again, better editing might have helped.

Despite that it is an excellent drama and should please any foreign film fan.
