Storyline

On a crystal clear, starry and bitingly cold winter night a young woman dressed in the traditional Lucia white gown is seen running across the ice while sobbing. She stumbles in her long gown and drops her crown of candles in the snow and when she reaches a channel in the ice she throws herself into the dark waters and disappears. We find Erica and her husband Patrik right in the middle of preparing everything to celebrate Christmas in their house for the first time. On the 13th of December the family goes to church to watch the Lucia celebration only to find out that the Lucia has gone missing. Erica who notices a dispute in the audience can't help herself but to try and find out what the fight was really about and what could have happened to the missing Lucia. The past catches up with the present as Erica's discoveries leads to the missing Lucia, a secret love affair and a son seeking revenge for his mother. Written by Tre Vänner

Formulaic and cheap
12 January 2015 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Another film made after a Camilla Läckberg crime novel about the murders in the small town Fjällbacka. The novels are written in a quite contrived way, and the films follow up this. I think the script could have enhanced this, but Läckberg herself has been involved in the script writing, I understand.

This is a made for TV production based upon a formulaic storytelling. The local police is investigating into a case with a missing teenage girl which has several layers, of some going way back in time. Then we see the up-building to where a bastard of boss of a herring factory, very much disliked by most, and obviously also having an affair with the young girl.

The whole storytelling is made in a very obvious way. The problem is that it is difficult to believe in so much of the story. It's quite amateurish in many ways, even if they use good actors. Even photography is formulaic and annoying. Especially the close up focusing of tea cups and the use of hand-held camera.

The film fails to engage, and every now and then i t tries and almost does, the hopeless dialog ruins it. If you are a love of Swedish crime dramas you will have problems in appreciate this. It feels easy, cheap, formulaic and contrived. Difficult to recommend even for easy watching.
