Storyline

While in a party promoted by her chief and friend Måns Wenngren, the fiscal attorney, Rebecka Martinsson, receives a call from her former sister-in-law, Sanna Strandgård, telling that her brother and preacher Viktor was murdered, stabbed and with severed hands, and she would be arrested. Rebecka heads to her hometown Kiruna and defends Sanna, but the evidences found by the police in her house prove her guilty and she is arrested. While investigating the crime, Rebecka is haunted by her past and faces the bigoted and fanatic religious dwellers that worship the local church, and is more convinced of the innocence of Sanna.

Failed movie
18 November 2012 | by maximkongSee all my reviews

Great sceneries and great acting from many well-known actors could not save this film from a horrible plot flow that failed to connect well with each other.

The movie instead was successful at leaving many questions unanswered. And all the plot holes consequently turn the whole thing entirely 180 degrees back into 'nothing makes any sense at all' material. What more needed to say? This is probably the worst that can happen of a horror/dark noir/ crime thriller - based film. Whoever the director is should restudy on making a convincing movie, because the subject matter it is based on is a unique thing but the potential was not developed properly.

Please do the world justice by destroying this movie in a storm!
