Gritty Nordic cop drama
6 May 2015 | by kindle-44250See all my reviews

I've watched this move on my Icelandair flight to KEF.

The good: drama feels real; some sequences are excellent; plot twists work well; the female cop acts close to perfection; devoid of the usual leftist aroma of most Nordic movies. Very good camera work and editing.

The bad: a police investigation without phone tapping is unrealistic post 9/11; motivations of some characters no not make much sense; the SWAT team acts as if manned by brainless clones, really destroying most of the scenes they're in.

The average: I wasn't excited by the direction but I wasn't unhappy, either; I've noticed big variations between scenes (maybe it wasn't the same director?).

Really enjoyed watching this movie.
