  • This film is one in a series of films based on the world famous thrillers by swedish writer-couple Sjöwall and Wahlöö. The films where made in 1993-94 and are definitely my favorite filmings of the books. Gösta Ekman as the criminal investigator Martin Beck has a very low key approach to the role which makes room for the other characters and for the melancholic atmosphere. The police team and especially Rolf Lassgård and Kjell Bergqvist give tremendous credibility to their characters. This film along with "Roseanna" (1993 and also directed by Daniel Alfredson) shows what level of sophistication can be achieved in a thriller if the characters are fully developed and action scenes are kept at a minimum.
  • Gösta Ekman as Beck, Rolf Lassgård as Gunvald, Kjell Bergqvist as Kollberg and Niklas Hjulström as Benny Skacke. The best group that have ever played Sjöwall/Wahlöö's investigators? Well, at least they are not far from it. This time they have to find a serial-killer that murders young girls in the parks of Stockholm. The director Daniel Alfredsson is a talented director and he knows how to make a thrilling movie. And this is a very good movie. I highly recommend it.
