Being an Non-Scandinavian, I'm not able to share the (justified?) disapproval of some of the other reviewers. So all native Scandinavians, please excuse my apparent ignorance;). Watching this movie on a SAS flight, I felt quite amused by this little gangster comedy involving Finns, Swedes, Norwegians, Arabs and Russians in a vivid turmoil about cars,guns and money. Though the story about a Russian mobster and his crazy Finnish hit men trying to get an old Cadillac full of mob money back from a sleazy car dealer and his naive son-in-law surely isn't all too original (often resembling movies like Snatch or Pulp Fiction), the location and actors do indeed convey a certain charm that makes this movie all in all worth to watch, and may it be just for the sake of simple entertainment.
