Jägarna 2 is a pleasant example of famous Swedish crime thrillers: a gloomy policeman with personal issues, slow pace of events, crimes/misdemeanors related to closed societies, long frames of magnificent local nature. However, I could guess the evildoer's person rather soon and, in my submission, he could have been disclosed at the later stage or even in the very beginning. The two leading actors - Rolf Lassgård and Peter Stormare - are great; I think, for me it is the first film with Stormare performing in his native language. The other actors are good as well, but not very catchy, especially the female ones.
Moreover, the film could have been shorter and with more sophisticated ending, but still: it is recommended to those fond of Scandinavian Wallander and Beck types of thrillers.
