Trivia

The commuter train station in Huddinge in use when the movie was shot, with its scenes there, was torn down completely in 1986. The nostalgic value of the movie came to be even bigger when copyright issues made the movie largely unavailable from the mid 1990's until its final DVD release in December 2017. See more »

Goofs

The commuter trains stopping at the station in Huddinge, both the one Olsson arrives with, and the one Stickan is shown not being able to get off, are both headed in the direction into Stockholm, not out from town, as they should be. Persson is waiting for Stickan at the station of Tullinge, which was at this time the next station for trains headed out from Stockholm, on their way towards Södertälje. (In 1987, the suburb of Flemingsberg got its own station between Huddinge and Tullinge.) See more »

Hilarious action comedy
18 July 2002 | by pemerSee all my reviews

Gösta Ekman and Björn Gustafson as crooks together a couple of years before the concept of "Jönssonligan". And great comedy star Brasse Brännström as a secret police, who meets up with the brain behind the crooks in the hilarious grand finale, taking place at the old long lost, since destroyed, train station at Huddinge (a southern suburb of Stockholm, most known for its well renowned second division hockey team, original club of NHL pros Michael Nylander and Jan Mertzig - AND furthermore Peter Forsberg made his senior hockey debut with MoDo meeting Huddinge in their home arena).

The movie has some absolutely marvelous scenes, not the least those where Gustafson and Ekman argue heavily disguised in Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck masks. A large part is also played by the notorious old beaten up Toyota Crown, driven first by Gustafson, and later refusing to start on Ekman, when Gustafson´s part "Bosse" is to be.... well, make sure you get to see this classic movie, and see for yourself!
