Storyline

After causing a commotion with his last assignment, Falk has been given a desk job, which hardly agrees with his personality, and he ends up accepting an offer from an old friend to buy into a private investigation agency. Another friend of Falk's, Sven, purchased a business in Estonia, and when local gangsters attempted to pressure him into paying protection money, Sven retained the services of Nikolaus Lehmann, a burly private eye, to throw them off his trail. However, Lehmann does his job all too well, murdering the racketeers, and then threatening Sven and his family. With no where else to turn, Sven asks Falk to help him deal with the crazed Lehmann; Falk agrees, but soon realizes he's dealing with a more dangerous man than he imagined when Lehmann kidnaps Sven's wife Jeanette, and then releases her with a time bomb locked around her neck, demanding that Sven hand over ownership of his company to Lehmann.

Very cool film about personal protection

This is the first Swedish film I have seen, having watch it on the SBS TV channel in Australia the reason I watched it was the title got my attention due working in the private security industry. It is very sparse with none of the usual Hollywood Bulls**t that is usually attached with these type of films. A realistic and compentent look at the intricate world of personal protection, especially during the scene's where the bad guys take the house and Pernilla throws herself in front of the principal and keep's him down until the all clear is given.The ending is edge of seat stuff. All up a extremely good film. Highly recommended veiwing
