Female Cops go Kalle Blomkvist in Stockholm
11 May 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is a film that is what we in Sweden call "småputtrig", i.e. it kind of just "simmers along", like a pot of stew on a stove. Its not going nowhere, and not much is really happening, except a bit of heating and the creation of small bubbles. Actually, this film also simmers on a rather low heating, a 4 out of 10 heating, that is. Its never above a 5 in the funniness respect.

As to tie together the story of two girls trying to get into the police academy in Stockholm, they get to become mavericks, tracking down a criminal in the silliest "Kalle Blomkvist" fashion imaginable. This lowers the whole film, a couple of extra degrees, and reduces its "småputtrighet".
