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 visual effects crew had to digitally remove reflections of cameras and other equipment seen in Benny's glasses in post-production. See more »
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 »

Not as brilliant as "Jalla, Jalla!" but a great laugh
If you're looking for real comedy and humor, this is the movie to watch. Especially if you like the previous movie, Jalla,Jalla! by the same director (and many of the same actors) this one is a must. However don't be disappointed if the quality is not as high as Fares's debut.
It's more filled with stupid jokes and the characters are not as thoroughly deepened as you would like. On the other hand, the plot (paper thin as it may be) very original and you feel good by it. Moreover the special effects are unexpectedly good for a swedish film. It may be clear that I liked this one very much and I can really recommend it! ...
