Trivia

When Kjell Sundvall was set to direct, he was drowning in letters from people that wanted to share their theories of the actual murder of Olof Palme. This led to a decision to not slip any information about the shooting of the film to the public. See more »

Goofs

The assassin's villa is said to be in Valetta on Malta but from the surrounding mountains seen across the bay this is obviously incorrect and appears to be Cape Town, South Africa. See more »

A refreshing action film.
13 January 2001 | by (Mexico City, Mexico) – See all my reviews

Being tired of watching U.S. detective and spy movies, with all their over used cliches (the spy who falls in love and must not, as in "The Saint", the nice looking hero who saves the free world, the Russians as being always the evil guys and sort of) all I can say about this one is that it recaptures the original meaning of detective movies, and shows us at the same time a new perspective (the troubles by keeping the detective job secret from the family, the unusual emotional ties between the assassin and a journalist, the passive role of the government in the crime, etc).

A very well time-paced movie with a intelligent and mature plot rarely seen in detective and action movies this days. I strongly recommend it.
