The premise of the film: Dante hiring the organization Little Secret Service to prevent him from smoking using various creative methods in order to gain a large sum of money is remarkably similar to the premise of the The Flintstones (1960) episode The Flintstones: Fred Flintstone: Before and After (1961) where Fred is given the offer of 1000 dollars if he can loose a certain amount of weight and is aided by the club Food Anonymous to prevent him from eating using various creative methods.

Mannen som slutade röka (The man who stopped smoking).
This film is about the changes you go through when trying to get rid of an addiction. Ingenious Gösta Ekman, who plays Dante Alighieri, will make you laugh in ways you didn't think was possible. The film is packed with hilarious scenes. In one passage Dante is in such a bad shape his hand tries to take the initiative, and he has to fight his hand to prevent it from grabbing a package of cigarettes. The result is a totally wrecked kitchen. No matter what you think about smoking, this is 110% FUN for everyone who sees it. Unlike some other Tage Danielsson films, such as Picassos äventyr, you do not have to be Swedish to get it.
Definitely one of the ten best comedies ever!
