Decent crime thriller, with some questionableness
21 March 2013 | by BeneCumbSee all my reviews

Arising from globalization and the EU membership, Sweden has also become an open country, which unfortunately includes free movement of criminals, illegal workers etc. Often, there are immigrants involved in cross-border felonies - in this film, people from the former Eastern bloc. The events seem logical, the thrill is in place, but the choice of actors depicting non-Swedes and their character names are a real mess: an Estonian in Sweden is performed by a Bulgarian, a Lithuanian Russian has completely Estonian name and is played by a Finnish Swede, a Russian from Estonia has Yugoslav name and is played by a Finnish Swede etc. The outcome is communication in horrible Russian which was really difficult and annoying to listen. Genuine Russian or Estonian actors could have been used instead (some scenes were shot in Tallinn anyway). The main and recurring actors, however, were up to scratch as usual; pity that Joel Kinnaman's character (Frank Wagner) had only a few scenes.

In spite of the shortcomings mentioned above, a decent thriller anyway, no better or worse than the rest of Falk-related films.
