Police lieutenant Nyman is murdered in his hospital bed and Martin Beck and his colleagues have another murder to solve. They discover that Nyman was a very tough policeman who received several complaints about his methods. His partner Hult defends him against these accusations, while Nyman's widow explains that Hult was the only one outside of the family who knew where Nyman was hospitalized. It becomes obvious to Beck, that a lot of people wanted Nyman dead, but he is not the only one targeted. Soon a sniper kills policemen from a roof in central Stockholm.Written by
WOW!!! Before I saw this I was not expecting it to be so very good(just another cop-drama)but what i got was a masterpiece.Wideberg is not so famous international but in Sweden he counts as one of the best directors ever.First of all I would to say that technical this film is perfect.All the way from the masterful start to the un expected ending.
But not only that,the characters in this film are fantastic.And the acting is superb.It´s also famous because of it was the first real Action/crime film in Sweden and I still think that it is the best.A perfect film:Both very exciting and very realistic.5/5
