Pushy journalist Malin Crepin uses her head to track a bold killer
20 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Nobel's Last Will" is a pretty slick little detective story, with the detective being journalist Annika Bengtzon, played by Malin Crepin.

There have been so many of these kinds of stories for the past 100 years that their novelty now rests on inventing new heroes and new bad guys. To do that requires the writers to take some chances with their hero or heroine and likewise with their criminals. The rule is to be bold without alienating your audience.

I think we got that here in this, the first entry in the series. The heroine is by no means perfect. Her flaws make her interesting as do her strong points, and sometimes they are one and the same. Her push in her job and for her job, for example, is a plus, but at times it's a negative for being a mother. While attractive, Ms. Crepin is not a raving beauty, but she has a certain intensity and charm. She also has moved beyond being a fresh youth. There were hints of her being a free woman, despite her live-in man. All of this helps. The little sub-plot involving her son and a bully was well done.

The plot boldly placed a big question mark and negative over the workings of scientists and the Nobel Prize. This became the source of the story's central crime. That alone elevated the movie.

The plot unfolded quite nicely. It was fresh, despite some elements of predictability which is to be expected in such an aged genre. The novelty of the Swedish environment and ways helps some too.

I found it a good diversion.
