Murders in the dark
11 October 2010 | by quevaalSee all my reviews

This is a real crime TV movie on the murders in Knutby, Sweden, 2004. I remember the case, but as with most murder cases, I tend to tire of them quite fast and literally lose the plot. The chance to see a movie that sums up the events was quite welcome. However, the events on the actual murder nights kept me in the dark. There's even a previous murder in 1999 that was mixed in and which made me believe they happened around the same time. Since the murderer confessed I fail to see why we could not get the full story. Having said that, I'm no Real Crime buff and watched the movie for the religious aspect.

The acting in this movie is a bit stiff, like reenactments on National Geographic. However, Anna-Lena Strindlund playing Åsa Waldau, aka, "The Bride of Christ" aka "Tirsa" (see Song of Solomon 6:4) was eerily similar and quite convincing. The movie has live audio from sermons so you can hear the real speeches on top of the acting in the film. In addition there are recordings from wired tapped phone calls, and there are real interviews with some of the main characters. These audio parts, especially the phone calls, were quite revealing.
