In The Hague, Holland, the new chief of Europol Sellberg broadcasts a tough speech against the third wave of crimes in Europe, promising to suffocate the schemes of powerful criminals. He invites his former detective and friend Johan Falk for a meeting, with the intention to join him to his team. Meanwhile, the executive Rebecca accidentally opens one correspondence of her mate, Kane, and finds that he launders illegal money for European mobsters. When she decides to disclose her discoveries to Europol, her life is jeopardized by the associates of her boy-friend, but Rebecca is rescued by Johan, and they have to fight against the organized crime to save their lives and Johan's family.

"Dock INGET TACK till polisledningen i Göteborg som för tredje gången vägrat lyfta ett finger för att hjälpa oss. Tur att polishuset i Göteborg i övrigt är fyllt med samarbetsvilliga poliser..." Which translates roughly to: "But NO THANKS go to the police-management in Göteborg as they, for the third time, have been unwilling to lift a finger to help us. Lucky for us the police-houses of Göteborg are filled with cooperative officers..." See more »
This is the third and last installment in the Trilogy, first movie "Noll Tolerans" was an above decent swedish thriller. The following movie "Livvakterna" was excellent in my opinion, cause the action was well directed and necessary apart from many american action movies. And "Den tredje vågen" follows the same pattern, but now with a better side-casting and a greater budget. The difference from a swedish movie and a big budget american one, isn't actually the budget, but the way the money are used. An american action is almost in all cases concentrated on the special effects as in "terminator 3" for instance. But in "den tredje vågen" (which I really do not want to compare with t3 in anyway) the special effects are hidden within the movies action, you don't sit concerned about how they did those gigantic expensive 3d animations, the action isn't there to keep you awake but to be a part of the story. And the story is a quite frightening one. I would probably give this movie an 8 out of 10. The action-direction is suberb, and as I said justified compared to the great mass of american actionstyle movies. I am indeed satisfied with the 4.5 million dollar spent in making... how much did T3 cost?
