Ever wondered why someone would kill the Swedish Prime Minister?
An excellent, intelligent film, well written and played. Michael Kitchen is superb as the cold-blooded assassin, much more believable than some indestructable beefcake "actor". The closest comparison I can think of is to the original "Day of the Jackal" film. Thankfully, we are spared any speculation as to who was involved in a conspiracy, only that the web of intrigue stretches far and wide. Can be strongly recommended, partly for historical interest, mostly as a good example of Swedish film-making (or indeed any film-making). It would be a great pity if the Swedish origin prevented it from reaching a wider audience.
