Good action, good acting - and beyond Beck/Wallander films
18 March 2013 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

In fact, for me, the film in question was the first one to familiarize myself with Johan Falk - although the first films with this character were shot a decade before. When the participation of Beck or Wallander in chases and shootings was rather limited, then Falk has well "settled" in the challenges related to modern depravities and felonies; Sweden is not a nice and calm place anymore - mostly due to the influx of immigrants and development of mobility - and more severe crimes need more severe measures to be taken. Falk and his colleagues are equal to the task, using all the help the modern technology can provide. Nevertheless, old approaches are still in place, enabling to exploit the Frank Wagner's character (giftedly performed by Joel Kinnaman), who sometimes overshadows Johan Falk himself (well, Jakob Eklund is pleasant, even as older). Anyway, all the characters spending more time on screen are elaborated and well played, and there is no contrasting of "good" and "bad" guys.

Thus, the film is virtually as good as any good British crime thriller, for example. I am eager to see all other Falk films as soon as possible.
