I saw this movie as a two-part mini-series on German television in a dubbed version. The works of Henning Mankell, author of the original novel, had been recommended to me. So although I expected something above the average TV stuff, this really knocked me off my feet! The story is excellent and provides lots of unexpected twists and turns, and casting and acting are just plain beautiful. This goes especially for the villain. One has got to get used to the camera work here, it resembles the hand-camera style of the Dogma series. I should perhaps note that this is a film about violence against women, and it's done in a way women should like. Don't miss this one!
