Sweden's version of police academy
16 February 2008 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

this is both emotional and funny. one of many few really good Swedish films out there... big credits to Helena Bergström for her excellent work.

First of I would like to point out how hard it is for people to get into the police academy in Sweden. the standard is higher then the most country's.

And actually thats whats this movie is all about.

secondly the humor in this movie is quite funny, really funny in some parts. the family plots whit the father problems is as Im made to believe based upon a true story.

You could say that this is a Swedish version of the police academy. there is only one movie based on the same sort of movies from Sweden and it is Kopps.. a really nice piece.

but again thanks for this lovely movie..
