Trivia

The movie is based on a novel by an anonymous writer who used a pseudonym of John W. Grow. Both director Kjell Sundvall and producer Börje Hansson claims that they don't have a clue who that is. 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 dark, well-played/directed, movie.
10 August 1998 | by See all my reviews

This is the story about the killing of one of the greatest politicians in Swedish history, Olof Palme. Like the murder of JFK, many questions has popped up if involvment stretches as high as up to the government. Mikael Persbrandt shows, as usual, a superb way of playing his role. This time he plays a police on the track of the Palme-killer. Kjell Sundvall directs with perfect timing and speed, and gives the film a perfect touch. These two components bring this film up to my top10 Swedish films-list. Simply excellent!
