| A realistic yet horrifying plot driven thriller.
After a series of murders staged as accidents, the Swedish investigation unit decided to recruit Johan (Andreas Wilson), a young but already well known police student to help out with the case. Johan proves to be a very valuable asset in an investigation that turns out to be more than originally believed.

In contrast to what I've heard about this movie earlier I think that it was actually quite good. The plot is well thought through and you are kept on the edge of your seat the entire time through a mix of very realistic yet horrifying murders and thriller elements.

The student scenes feel a bit awkward and stale, the acting isn't always top of the line and doesn't feel very natural between the student peers; still I feel that the overall performances in the film almost sets the mood in a better way than the usual laid back student atmosphere would.

It's commonly known that the Swedish film industry is only good at realistic police flicks (Beck) and ironic/perverse grown up comedy (Vuxna Människor). I think that this is a pretty good variation of what a crime film can turn into with a tad more thriller and horror elements.
