This is actually an ok swedish actionfilm. For those of you familiar with the books and films about the swedish intelligence officer Carl Hamilton I would say that this is by far the best film produced. Persbrandt is ok as Hamilton and the story isn't too bad (though very different from the book).
There are a few bad things though:
- The acting is sometimes not belivable. This is true about Persbrandt at times, but mostly concerning the politcians. Pernilla August and David Dencik.
- The by far biggest problem: The cinematography. It's poorly lit and filmed with digital equipment, at times making it look like a cheap tv-drama (and it's a pretty expensive film, by swedish standards). And why handheld all the time?
Fix those problems and I would give it 3 stars.
