5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Swedish Crime Thriller
This is actually a follow up to a film from 1996 called `Jagarna' and this was originally called `Jagarna 2', but you don't have to see the first one to be able to follow this but it will help contextualise everything.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rolf Lassgård is So Good
I love Lassgård as Wallander and in his many films, but this show, False Trail, is just a little too cruel for me. Hunting shows aren't my thing. I guess it's good, just not my cup of tea.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Acting,
Story line has too many loose ends and unexplained incidents. Also. too many characters and red herrings. Stick to the story.

Brilliant. Orginal was excellent but this is even better and in the 2nd main character, Torsten, they have a great screen characters in this film and the two main actors working brilliant off each other. This is a great film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good cop, bad cop.,
Rolf Lassgard plays the role of a Swedish detective who transfers from the capital city to
join the police force in a small backwoods community. When a young girl is found murdered
the local police chief assumes that the culprit has to be a local hippie-cum-petty criminal
who has had many run-ins with the law in the past. The police chief, like all of the men in
this community, is a fanatical hunter. Everyone has a high-powered hunting rifle and revels
in shooting. Scenes of animals being killed, then beheaded and disembowelled set the
tone for the gripping drama that unfolds as Lassgard gets closer to the true identity of
the girl's killer. Not as convincing or as dramatically coherent as "The Hunters".

This was noir at its best if you saw Rolf in mankell this reinforces his acting creds. If you like the skandivan stuff you will like this.
