Police officer Benny is obsessed with American police cliches and livens up his own boring everyday life with dreams of duels with bad guys. But poor Benny and his colleagues doesn't have much to do in the small town of Högboträsk. Most of their days are spent drinking coffee, eating sausage waffles and chasing down stray cows. Peace and quiet is the dream of every politician, but for the Swedish authorities, the lack of crooks is reason to close the local police station. When the cops investigate a suspected act of vandalism, they realise that they themselves may be able to raise the crime statistics high enough to stay in business.Written by
Adam Sandler and Columbia Pictures bought the rights to make an American film adaption of this shortly after its original release, though it's unknown if the project will ever see the light of day. See more »
The call signal sounds from their radios are wrong. The Swedish Police and Rescue services use two different radio systems (when the film was made. They are now changing to a TETRA system). The S80 is only used by the Police in the three biggest cities. The S70 is used by everyone, (Police, Rescue, SAR, Mil etc) everywhere else. Since the film is "far from everything" they should use the S70 system but the sounds are from a S80 system. See more »
You're the leader of a SWAT-team... You fill out your waistcoat, not just literately... You're competent. You know, something is missing here.

Very very Funny ! Great Film !
I'm not to big a fan of movies that make you laugh only with slapstick comedy... and this film surely goes beyond the silly. It made me laugh with some very good parody, with great situations and finally with very loveable characters. Its a smart comedy no doubt. I highly recommend it. The rythm is great... your never bored or know whats coming up next.
