Call Girl is set in the late 1970s - a time time of women's liberation, sexual revolution, Swedish neutrality, nuclear power and social security. The film takes us on a trip from the very bottom of society, along dark back streets, through glitz and glamour, to the corridors of power which are a labyrinth of secrets. The story is inspired by a Swedish political scandal known as Bordellhärvan which linked underage prostitution with powerful customers believed to come from the highest levels of society.Written by
Inspired by the non-fiction novel "Makten, männen, mörkläggningen" (The Power, The Men, The Cover-up) (2004) by Deanne Rauscher & Janne Mattsson. See more »

Thought you were the press officer, not a police officer.
Well... that thing with the ladies will have to be put under wraps. You, of all people, know what can happen when a situation gets sticky.

1970s and a Swedish scandal which is said took place in reality. High politicians went to prostitutes, some of them certainly much under age.
The problem with this film is whether it's having too little or too much to do with what really happened. Real historical persons appear here, only slightly disguised or not disguised at all really. But that's another kind of discussion. Are there anyway qualities to be found?
Yes, the so called life of the young girls is narrated in a rather touching way and focus should have been on that. Instead it's about corrupt politicians, corrupt police captains and a single policeman trying to fight it. The characters are somewhat square, which hides the story a little.
