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.

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 »


Agneta: [prods Lasse's stomach] What kind of fat is this? Looks like a bun around his stomach. Do you have a spare tire if we have a puncture?
Lasse: And you say that with those baggy tits. Shitty saddlebags pointing south.

Agneta: [squeezes her breasts] Perfect.

Laughter, laughter and laughter!
11 September 2003 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I think that this movie can´t be taken to seriously. If you read other comments you will find a lots of complains. I say: Don´t pay to much attention to those. Although this movie is childish and predictable, its content is funny as hell and the actors are perfect for their rolls.

Don´t crap it down people because it was a long time ago that i had such fun at the cinema! Go Fares!! 10/10 for the comedy!
