Johan Falk is with the wife of a dead mob boss down to Latvia to try to solve a mystery that has eluded him for three years. What Johan finds downstairs in a cottage outside Riga shocks not only himself but also the Gothenburg police special unit GSI 's new chief Sophie Nordh and the former chief Patrik Agrell. At the same time a Latvian mafia group is picking up hidden and forgotten Soviet military containers from the water-filled pits nearby. Containers filled with weapons. And everything is heading to Sweden! At the same time most of the original members of the Rydellgang are being released from a long prison sentence.

User Reviews

A great and exciting movie for those who have seen the previous Falk movies
2 September 2015 | by davidnetzSee all my reviews

Fun, exciting and original characters, some based on real people.

For anyone who have seen the previous Johan Falk movies this is an awesome next step into the franchise which is now (unfortunately) at it's end.

The problem I think is when people watch those movies without actually having seen the previous ones, considering all the 20(!) movies in the franchise have connections it should be obvious, in my opinion, that you sort of "have to" watch it from the start to finish.

It easily leads to people not liking the movie, because it makes little sense if you're a newcomer. I say go watch it all the way from the first film Noll Tolerans (Zero Tolerance).

What makes these movies so good is not just the acting, action scenes or the good laughs you get. It's that they feel so realistic and some of the characters and stories are based on people and events that exist(ed) in the real world. To me, that is a whole new level of excitement!
