I am not a big fan of Swedish films at all, but this one had Mads Mikkelsen in the leading role. He is the greatest danish star in many years (Bond 21, King Arthur)and just his presence should make you watch this movie.
The common problem with Scandinavian films is the budget, which cant match Hollywood at all, so the story has to be great. This story takes place in the financial world, and Mads Mikkelsen plays a businessman which is head suspect in the murder of his mentor, because he can gain a lot of money on his death. He is in-prisoned, but then a mysterious voice calls and starts making demands, and are they not held his wife and child are going to be killed. So we follow his fight for the survival of his family and pursuit to clear his name.
This might sound like an average movie, but the ends makes this a movie to seen and acknowledged. A great movie, great acting and a great story. Absoluttely worth a 1,5 hour!
