You get what you expect, and more
23 March 2008 | by psodhSee all my reviews

This is a typical police film. Made for TV and the DVD-market. If you keep that in mind and see the film with the right expectations I'll guarantee you will have a good time.

Best is some of the actors. Especially the lead, Angela Kovacs. This is the first, in a very long time, every single line was delivered in a believable and natural way. Often, in this sort of productions, actors play roles (like in the theatre) they don't act like real people. Angela Kovacs feels totally true and is magnificent. So is Lasse Brandeby, actually, who is best known for his comedic work. He seems totally relaxed and is the part, without any overacting.

If you, like me, prefer Wallander (with Krister Henriksson) to Beck (with Peter Haber) you will love this. In its kind this film is very good, and I look forward to more films in the series.
