| GoI'd novel, but fails to engage as film
I liked this Jan Guillau-novel when I read it two years ago, and as far as I remember this film follows the book quite OK. OtherS has written it doesn't, but except for using never technology and coffee machines, this is quite close.

I think Mikael Persbrandt is good as agent Hamilton, but the start if the film fails elegantly to engage me. Even when the little girl is kidnapped, the movie has managed to establish the needed sympathy. A film where one doesn't really route for the protagonists, will fail when it comes to be successful as a thriller. Here's a typical example of one.

A pity really, since I was looking forward to a ride like I had when reading the book. It looks like director Tobias Falk hasn't been up to the task of making this function, or maybe it's also the screenwriters faults. Less probable, since Stefan Thunberg has written the Wallanderfilms as well as the second outing of "The Hunters".

OK, but not much more.
