Police officer Benny is obsessed with American police cliches and livens up his own boring everyday life with dreams of duels with bad guys. But poor Benny and his colleagues doesn't have much to do in the small town of Högboträsk. Most of their days are spent drinking coffee, eating sausage waffles and chasing down stray cows. Peace and quiet is the dream of every politician, but for the Swedish authorities, the lack of crooks is reason to close the local police station. When the cops investigate a suspected act of vandalism, they realise that they themselves may be able to raise the crime statistics high enough to stay in business. Written by

The call signal sounds from their radios are wrong. The Swedish Police and Rescue services use two different radio systems (when the film was made. They are now changing to a TETRA system). The S80 is only used by the Police in the three biggest cities. The S70 is used by everyone, (Police, Rescue, SAR, Mil etc) everywhere else. Since the film is "far from everything" they should use the S70 system but the sounds are from a S80 system. See more »
Small Swedish village is pretty much free of all crime. Police force doesn't have much else to do than to loiter around, hoping for something to happen. But one day they hear, that their work place is under cancellation threat, so they must boost up their arrest and crime rate to keep their beloved police station.
They figure out, that if they don't have crime they might as well start doing crime themselves.
Hardly never movies with this kind of settings are good but Kopps does fine exception from that rule. A funny film with good acting and great jokes. Especially the crimes and descriptions of "Russian mafia" shoot outs and such are hilarious and well done.
My thumbs up.
