Storyline

The Swedish summer is on and Göran, recently dumped by his girlfriend, is searching for the woman of his dreams. Göran is not altogether in harmony with himself or his work situation and is trying a little bit too hard to please everyone around him. Unlike his best friend however, he is not prepared to compromise with love and settle for the less than perfect girl. In pursuit of love he sails out to a Midsummer party in the seductive Swedish archipelago. Unexpected love lurks in the bright Swedish summer's night ready to rock the raft of romance. Comedy and romance are the main ingredients when a story unfolds about young urban self conscious people in a high society setting. Written by Stella Nova Film

And again
6 August 2009 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

There is absolutely no glory in Swedish police films, but it isn't in our midsummer films either. This is about the event guy, who works hard, but is still kind of sensitive. He wants to marry, but meet the wrong women all the time.

How many times have we seen midsummer party disasters? Quite many, to say the least. People get drunk, excited, cheat and feel sad about it. But here it as usual mostly there to make the audience laugh. No depths here, just a way of getting couples to the pictures a Friday night and then tell their neighbors how funny this was.

If there aren't any other ambitions, you could of course call this successful.
