The police unit "GSI" of Gothenburg city have been ordered to identify and arrest the people responsible for importing young women into Sweden from Eastern Europe for the purpose of organized prostitution. Johan Falk (played by Jakob Eklund,) recruits a young polish civilian girl that works tending bar on a passenger ship that travels between Germany and Sweden who has insight into the organized people smuggling ring. Things go better than anyone had hoped and as things progress they enter a morally grey area more so than ever before... Written by Lepke

Did You Know?


This is the fifth film of season 1, released on the same day as Johan Falk: De fredlösa (2009) which is the sixth and last. The Follows/Followed by order is incorrect and somehow can't be changed because of the same day release. See more »


When Johan Falk and his team watch through the secretly taped video of the villains admitting to their crimes, they complain about that they cannot use it as evidence since they lacked the proper paperwork before rigging the camera and microphones. As policemen in a Special Crime Unit they should be very much aware of that the Swedish legal system accept ALL kind of evidence. Even those that are obtained through illegal ways. ...a fact that you would think that both a policeman and a screen writer should know about. See more »

User Reviews

Great Series but this one sucks big time!
4 April 2013 | by rightwingisevilSee all my reviews

I've watched "Johan Falk" 2009 series one by one, and believe me, this series rocks, even I don't quite like the actor who played Johan Falk 'cause he got a very crooked mouth like somebody suffered minor stroke, but it didn't affect his great performance in the whole series so far. Almost every episode of this series is dynamic with great screenplays, directed so well, and the suspenses never turned flat, and the Johan Falk guy is a tough, smart, fearless and hands-on guy who always did his job 110%. But I just don't why this episode suddenly turned him into a lamer with stupid decisions on and on with unforgivable judgments again and again. With different screenplay writers perhaps further jeopardized his attractive persona in a quite unbalanced performances in each episode. In this episode and several episodes before it, Johan Falk appeared to be less and less aggressive and more and more reserved and indecisive either by himself and by the tighter control of his superior officers. All in all with these bad factors said, this episode is a huge below average disappointment.
