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 brilliant movie, with a standard but good and complex plot that changes all the time.
10 January 2004 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

A brilliant movie, with a standard but good and complex plot that changes all the time. (Even better than any of the Swedish Hamilton and also the Beck movies where the main actor Mikael Persbrandt plays a main support role.) The plot is built upon the assasination of Prime Minster Olof Palme. One pregnant error in the script concerns the Swedish political party EAP which is used as one of the scape goats. It never was a right-wing nazi party as shown in the movie. Still, the movie is one of the best thrillers I have seen in a bout one year. It is better than the best US movies, such as "Enemy of the State" due to the higher complexity and the high social realism which is more typical of European movies.
