The Storyline, shown twice on this page, has nothing to do with this episode, which deals with an abused woman and (spoiler) the policeman who has abused her and killed her ex-husband , not with "reach across borders" or "odds with the Intelligence service" or "seedy underworld transactions and links."

When Lillemor looks at the business card of Gunvald, the cell phone number shown is one owned by the production company of the picture, Filmlance. The beeper number is fake, with the digits 12 34 65. See more »


In the final stage of the movie, when Gunvald is driving for the Berner residence, you clearly see skid marks in the hard turn, as the scene is taken numerous times. See more »

A small revival for a tired genre
28 July 2006 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Does anyone really know how many movies have been done, using these characters created by Swedish crime writers Sjöwall/Wahlöö? These authors used to be very much to the political left. But times change. I would say they have sold out. Completely.

But never mind, "Beck-Skarpt Läge" is one of the better ones in this endless line of movies, using the policemen Beck and Larsson. They this time deal with wife abusers and obviously, the plot becomes more effective, when it is about so called everyday crime.

Rather exciting, even if you too soon get to know who the murderer is. Peter Haber and Mikael Persbrandt are not that tired in their acting performance. This is not for an international audience, but it's functioning in it's Swedish environment.
