Swedish agent Carl Hamilton and Finnish Åke Stålhandske are ordered to stop Russian smugglers. The smuggled goods is a nuclear missile. It's an SS 20, 1,5 megatons, "enough to turn Paris, Washington or New York to ashes". The American villain is Mike Hawkins.Written by
During filming of the climactic fight scene, Mark Hamill was told a punch he'd thrown at Peter Stormare's face didn't look convincing enough, and was asked to swing "lower and closer." On the next take, Hamill did so and accidentally hit Stormare for real, hard enough that he split his lip. In a making-of documentary, Hamill was visibly shocked by the accident. See more »
The satellite images of the Russian tundra are obviously prerecorded, as the upper left corner of the screen clearly shows a filename: "TUNDRA2.AVI" See more »
Swedish Intelligence, huh? There's a contradiction in terms.

Was also made as a four-episode TV mini-series, which included about one hour of extra footage, as well as some re-shot scenes. See more »

My opinion of this positive piece of nordic film art
I think this movie shows a positive development in the movie industry in Scandinavia. It`s a brilliant action-film, with many elements that Hollywood wouldn`t accept (read: chainsaw-scenes). Peter Stormare is excellent and the best of the Hamiltons` that have appeared on celluloid. It has many different scenes and locations from Morocco to the Russian tundra and is a multi-international adventure. Jan Guillou is a very good writer and this is a fine product of two of his books (Ingenmans land and Sista Segern). See it, and make up your own mind.
