Trivia

Hollywood wanted to make a remake of this film. Kjell Sundvall was positive to this as long as it was a "First Blood" type of film. But the producers who wanted to buy the rights wanted to make it about cowboys in the Nevada dessert, shooting horse for fun. Kjell Sundavall didn't sell the rights after he heard this. See more »

The stuff thrillers are made from
30 May 1999 | by thnielsSee all my reviews

This movie is very believable and uncomfortably so. A small and peaceful society being shattered by some very violent deaths. Apparent random murders that they all could have committed. I couldn't help thinking of Jon Voigt in Deliverance, when following Erik Bäckström's fight, first for justice later for his own safety.

This thriller is highly recommended, except if you live in a small and remote hunter's community :-). It feeds on the tradition born from the books of writers Wahlöö & Sjöwall 30 years ago.
