Swedish Cop thriller
7 January 1999 | by (Helsinki, Finland) – See all my reviews

This movie is NOT bad, as the user ratings might indicate, but it isn't one of the best Beck™ movies either. I liked the older ones with Gösta Ekman a lot, they were brilliant, but this one seems a little sillier and more influenced by american Tv-series. This series of movies is about an old police officer called Martin Beck. The older ones were based on famous detective novels by Sjöwall & Wahlöö, but these newer ones are entirely made up. That can be a good thing or a bad thing, unfortunately, here it's a bad thing. This movie doesn't show any signs of the innovation and the originality of the older Beck-movies, but instead it offers a lot of clichéd characters and a predictable plot. This film's virtues are, of course, an exciting, entertaining and stylish direction by Pelle Seth. Too bad he doesn't get much depth into his characters. In the later Beck-movies, these characters develop and everything becomes better, so don't let this uneven cop thriller fool you.
