Most people who have seen this movie live in urbanised areas and will probably not be able to connect to this movie in the same way as we who have to deal with this on a daily basis. I watched it because of Stormare being one of the finest actors.
The movie shows what the Swedish Government prioritises and in this case it is the wolf. Other cases have been reported in Swedish media where farm animal owners got imprisoned for protecting their cattle. It took a few years for the government to realise that this wouldn't hold and they changed the law making it now possible to defend and protect ones cattle from carnivores (even pets).
The movie was shot prior to the legislative change but nevermind this still today our government spends millions for one wolf rather than protecting the people who suffer most. This movie shows the conflict the way we know it as of today and I think it is a shame that not more people abroad have been able to watch it.
I think they succeeded very well by focusing on what in their eyes seemed important. After all, they wanted to get a message across and this they succeed with. All investigation details where not their main concern but the fact that one is treated as if he'd killed a human being is quite concerning.
In my village a hunter shot a wolf protecting a hunting dog and he got treated like a murderer. City lawyers with no connection to nature or rural areas shall judge this person in a couple of month. Fair? This is exactly what this movie is about. It leaves you with this question. Is it fair that one has to lose everything in order to save one wolf?
