I like this movie.
20 January 2001 | by KrokRosSee all my reviews

This is the first of the Jönssonligan movies. There are 7 of them so far. Not always the same actors but always some similarity. The big personality in these movies is Charles Ingvar "Sickan" Jönsson. He is a nutty but very determined thief and an expert on breaking in a special kind of safe called "Frans Jäger". He has two companions in this film called Vanheden and Rocky. They have several different missions in this film but the main one is stealing the Bedford jewels, worth 20 million dollars. Their enemy is Wall Enberg, the richest man in Sweden. He is not the most honorable one. Dirty money. Black market. And lies. Great fun!
