Fast action, Hollywood type movie lovers will not like this movie. I loved it.
2 May 2017 | by oz_5See all my reviews

Again a good example of Nordic Noir where characters, their weaknesses,struggles and psychology play a part at least as important as the movie thrill factor. This type of movie feel is in stark contrast with much of today's heavy, blunt Hollywood machinery where one has to leave any desire for subtlety out of the watching door. Good for the more evolved side of the brain. Loved this movie.
