How can a team with this much talent turn out such a mediocre product? Top shelf crew deliver third rate serial killer flick with standard emotionally unavailable detective and an abundance of monstrous behavior directed entirely at women. And it's dull, and mostly arbitrary. I can only assume Alfredson loves something about the original source material, but whatever it is he failed to sell it in this adaptation.
Also... Harry Hole? Really?
Locations are great, and Thelma manage to squeeze a couple of great edits in there. Otherwise: yikes.
