Great Acting By Mikael Persbrandt

This film was very very good!

Mikael Persbrandt's acting in this film was brilliant, so was the acting by Stefan Sauk also. Persbrandt's portray of a psycopat is one of the best I have ever seen. The film was cool shooted and very suspenseful. I can't understand that this film's user rate was 4,9... But maybe you gotta like psycological movies to like this one, anyway, I give it 8,2 out of 10. See it right now!
