I think it was a pretty good movie with an interesting plot about police corruption. I think the twist at the end was the thing that made the movie good.
The Differences between the Swedish police now and the LAPD in the 50s. I think that the Swedish police force has less corruption and racism with stricter rules and better control over the officers.
