A good movie!
3 September 2003 | by jonace76See all my reviews

In 1973 Janne Olsson walked into a bank at Norrmalmstorg in Stockholm Sweden....

I was looking forward to seeing this movie. And i was not dissapointed after I saw it. The director has captured a lot of the suspence that held a whole nation by the balls.

This movie is based on a true story, and has been put together after interviews with both police, hostages and hostagetakers.

some of the actors are brilliant and some are just good...

I think Torkel Petersson gives the movie a boost up on the voting scale for his role as Janne Olsson.
