Not a great version from the book
15 November 2013 | by george-dysonSee all my reviews

I had read the book before viewing this movie and I found that so much of the plot had been removed in making this movie that it became unintelligible. If I had not read the book I don't think I would have much of an idea what it was all about.

I wouldn't criticise the acting, but because the flow of the movie was uneven, the acting may have unfairly been made to also look choppy.

I think the movie could have been longer to more fully develop the story that Marklund wrote.

I was hoping for a better translation of the book to film - but I would certainly encourage anyone to read the book before watching the movie just so you know what is happening and why.
