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

Great fun! :)
26 December 2001 | by synthesiteSee all my reviews

A very cleverly written and produced comedy, clearly stating that Jönssonligan would be a very successful series of films. This can be recommended to anyone between 5 and 95 years of age. Harmless, funny and perfect for the entire family. It's like a modern sequel to Laurel and Hardy. Gösta Ekman is one of the world's most talented actors, period.
