Much better than expected - strong Swedish crime-tale
22 May 2017 | by dakjetsSee all my reviews

Why the low rating? Very unfair. This movie is much better than expected. The act takes place in a small community in Sweden. Here old conflicts come to the surface when the adult daughter returns to her hometown to help her old father. The film is both a drama and an exciting crime drama. Weird events come back and we are wrapped up in an exciting story that really makes you hooked. The film has some of the most famous Swedish actors in the lead, including Lena Endre, which in my opinion makes one of her better performances in this movie, as the daughter who struggles with the past, and who fight to find the truth at last. Often it's unfortunate to mix different genres into one and the same movie, but here it works great. Now you know: When this shows up on a TV channel late night, then it's time to see it.
