a bit low-budget, but a wonderful, warm tale. I enjoyed it almost as much as i enjoyed the first one. Haven't read the book, though, so don't know how it measures up to the original, but all in all i would very much recommend it. Nice scenery and locations, good acting. Could have done a bit more with the scenes set in the Holy Land, maybe played up a bit the Saracens he brought back home to Sweden with him later on. One of the things i really enjoyed was that they weren't spilling buckets of blood all over the place, i hate this recent trend which puts the emphasis on "gory"....I have to say i will be checking for new productions in the genre from Sweden....
