Still an outstanding film in the Swedish film history
6 August 2002 | by bengt_historiskaSee all my reviews

When this film opened in 1940 it was highly praised by the Swedish critics because of its seriousness and good acting. The plot is rather simple;a seemingly useless murder is taken place among Swedish upper-class people. Although you know who the murderer is, it holds a firm grip on you from the beginning till the end of the picture. The acting is unfortunately rather outdated, but it is still an outstanding film in the Swedish film history and well worth seeing.
