Storyline

The movie begins with the Jönsson gang making a minor burglary. It goes wrong and the gang leader, Sickan, gets caught. After he has spent 10 months in jail, Vanheden and Rocky come to welcome him when he's released. But he doesn't take notice of them, and he's picked up by the mysterious banker Wall-Enberg Jr. instead. He wants Sickan to perform a burglary in Switzerland, in order to retrieve the famous Bedford Diamonds. Sickan does this but is fooled by Wall-Enberg and nearly gets caught. When he returns to Sweden and re-unites with his old gang members, he's set on revenge, both physically and psychologically... Written by Anders E Lundin

Superb!
11 January 2003 | by Nero68See all my reviews

A cult classic in Swedish movies. This is the first movie with the criminal league called Jönssonligan named after the "leader" Charles-Ingvar "Sickan" Jönsson. I have loved these movies the day the came. It blends clever burgler tricks with comedy. The funniest actor is of course Gösta Ekman. He's great as the little bit confused and clumsy but intelligent "Sickan" and he comes up the plans and his colleagues helps him. This is a true classic.
