This is a tight, very well constructed police procedural that is a little exotic, with the cops and functionaries being Russians. It's also a bit gloomy with a bittersweet ending, but it still works as a very watchable film. A lot of the outdoor shots were filmed in Helsinki, and the movie takes place in the winter. The atmosphere looks cold and oppressive. The contrast is striking with the scenes set in a pre-revolutionary bath and an expensive restaurant, both reserved for the use of privileged Soviet officials.
The book, by Martin Cruz Smith, is even better. Apted also directed Enigma, and I like both movies a lot.
Reminding me of "The Odessa File", another favourite of mine, I have watched this film many times and am neither bored or disappointed.
Worthy of two hours duration, one and half would be too rushed.

The ending was wonderful. I watched this video with my brother. The actors performed very well. This film looks fine. The plot is tortuous. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Griffin
It's the kind of book you need to read twice and there is about 5 others in the series so it could only be a bit hit and miss reallyPublished 6 months ago by Amazon Customer
