This film should be the last of Olsenbanden - fortunately it wasn't!
11 March 2005 | by EsselgehSee all my reviews

This 6th Olsenbanden movie was planned to be the last. But after the great success that also this movie had in Denmark, Erik Balling and Henning Bahs sat down behind their typewriters again to make another film.

In my eyes, movie no. 6 is the first Olsenbanden movie that is really perfect. Now they have every details that the later films made good - Bjorn Watt-Bolsen as the big businessman with criminal background, or Ove Verner Hansen as Boffen.

In the movie Egon has to steal the famous "Bedford Diamonds" out of a safe in Switzerland for Holm-Hansen Jr. But he is cheated, and now he and his gang try to get the diamonds, which Holm-Hansen wants to sell to an Arabian prince, for themselves...

As I said, the best Olsenbanden film until that day. It had been very sad if it had stayed the last one. But fortunately Balling and Bahs made their best movie ever in the year after, "Olsen-banden pa sporet". But I think also "Olsen-bandens sidste bedrifter" belongs to the Top 3 Olsenbanden movies.
