Johan is a two-fisted Gothenburg cop who finds himself in a shoot-out with jewel robbers. After the smoke has cleared, one robber, shot by his accomplice, and an innocent bystander, are dead. Three witnesses, including Helen, identify thug extraordinaire Leo Gaut as being the dead crook's trigger-happy colleague. Gaut soon threatens the three witnesses, and only Johan, the badge-wearing hero, can save them. Written by
In the credits of this film, the producers give their thanks to all the police forces in Västra Götalands Län (which is a part of the eastern part of Sweden) except for the police management - who is the only police authority in Sweden who refuses to help in the making of movies and other culture projects.

They thanked 5000 pedestrians and motorists when the traffic had been redirected round the city during the carchase-scene. See more »
I just had a revelation: people in Sweden like Swedish movies, no matter how goddamn awful they are in every department, because watching a Swedish movie means not having to deal with the enormous pressure of having to read subtitles! Well I'm sorry English flunkies, there's no joy in being Swedish when you're watching Noll Tolerans, because the actors in this one go to great lengths to make the dialogue IMPOSSIBLE TO HEAR! They're like: "Mff.....mlllg....asså mmff....mffmlflflf...", I'm like: "Huh?? Speak up you talentless aphasia victims!", and Swedish critics are like: "Best action movie ever!" Am I from another planet here?? Am I the only one to see just how awful, generic, dull, obnoxiously badly acted and incomprehensible this forgettable mess is?
I can live with the fact that Swedish movies in general are awful. What really bugs me though, is how Swedish critics as well as average Joes (or should that be average Svens?) praise this stuff as high art! "Oh yes, Noll Tollerans is as good as an action movie can possibly get! ...in Sweden, anyway. Because as we all know Swedish movies need special treatment and should be rated on the "good for a Swedish flick" scale rather than the "good period" scale. What's that you say? Bergman who?"
Um... this review is getting as incomprehensible as the movie itself. The point I'm trying to make is that Sweden HAS produced great films in the past, but critics choose to ignore that, praise trash, and thus movies like Noll Tolerans and Hip Hip Hora get 10-star reviews. This movie sucks. I love movies and the Swedish movie industry makes me want to kill myself. Is this really the best we can do??
