Make no mistake: this is a Swedish movie and it is a sequel among many other sequels, to a crime comedy which wasn't all that good in the first place. It's not exactly Kubrick, or even Schumacher for that matter, but it is a fun little film that doesn't try to be anything it isn't. It also has one of the best endings ever in a comedy. The cast is excellent; the combined comic talents of Gösta Ekman, Björn Gustafsson, Nils Brandt and Ulf Brunnberg make a rather mediocre script much funnier on-screen than it has any right to be. Ekman is at the top of his game as Charles-Ingvar "Sickan" Jönsson and as usual, he's got a plan - timed and ready, down to the tiniest detail.
The plot is not important in a movie of this kind - it's all about the performances from the main actors, and they're hilarious. Their dedication to their characters is more than the movie deserves, and it really makes it a pleasure to watch.
Love them or hate them, the Jönssonligan movies are a part of Swedish culture. This series isn't exactly high art - it's just a pretty funny franchise. If you can forget that this series spawned a myriad of awful kiddie comedy sequels, you will enjoy this flick. Besides, where else can you see Gösta Ekman as a German businessman??
