Some kids on summer vacation in a small coastal village in the south of Sweden invent, out of boredom, a sinister plot involving hidden war treasures and secret agents. Or do they in fact stumble upon a real conspiracy? Well chosen cast, excellent black & white cinematography, beautiful, moody 60's music and a perfect mixture of humor, suspense and even horror - this is a kind of film for teenagers that simply don't get made anymore. Produced by the legendary Olle Nordemar, also responsible for more or less all the great Swedish films and TV-series for kids during three decades, including all of Astrid Lindgren. This series is one of the very best but, sadly, it is not shown very often, not even in Swedish public-service TV.
