Did You Know?


In the end, an important clue is the silence of the dog (Fiffi) in the night-time. Though no explicit reference to Sherlock Holmes is made, this must be a nod to The Adventure of Silver Blaze, a short story by Arthur Conan Doyle, in which the following famous exchange takes place: Gregory (Scotland Yard detective): "Is there any other point to which you would wish to draw my attention?" Holmes: "To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time." Gregory: "The dog did nothing in the night-time." Holmes: "That was the curious incident." See more »

The best and most suspenseful Beck yet!
13 December 2001 | by Valmont74See all my reviews

A gruesome murder where a man has his face sliced off opens the new Beck film, this time directed by Harald Hamrell.

This is the tenth installment in the Beck series and it improves on the previous films in both tension and character. While some of the CGI in "Beck - Hämndens pris (2001)" looked bogus, this one opts more for a classic "whodunnit" based on clever acting and suspense than explosions and gun fights.

Peter Haber and Mikael Persbrandt are both great as Martin Beck and Gunvald Larsson, this time they also get great support from Malin Birgerson, Stina Ekblad, Karin Holmberg and especially Michalis Koutsogiannakis as the jealous husband Tachmed.

Even though some of the scenes might be a bit too gory for the weak of heart, the twists in the script, Hamrell's great direction and the witty and often funny dialogue will keep you watching untill the end. Ingvar Hirdwall as the obnoxious neighbor is superb as ever.

Well recommended. The only disappointment is that it didn't receive a theatrical release. The lack of a commentary track by Hamrell and some of the actors on the DVD is also a missed opportunity.
