This sequel works better then the first movie GSI. Its an easier narrative and also has more suspense. The action is also better directed/written then it was in GSI. As downside it doesn't work completely on its own but must be viewed after GSI. It also isn't as well-made as the the 3 original Johan Falck movies. It does lack the the end twist Anders Nilsson successfully created in Executive Protection and The Third Wave.
But this is a fresh alternative (and better) to other Swedish police movies (Beck and Wallander) That makes me want to see the rest of the series.
It also feels a lot more realistic then most other police movies. And Joel Kinnaman works very good for the movie, as does the rest of the cast. Highly recommended.
