Norwegian filmmaker Skjoldbjrg makes an impressive debut with this gripping thriller about a Swedish detective who ends up on the wrong side of lawlessness. Skarsgard is electrifying as the paranoid Jonas, an investigator who, while in pursuit of a suspect, accidentally kills his own partner (Ousdal) and tries to cover it up.
