Editorial Reviews

A mass murder, a female judge and diary entries from ages ago judge Brigitta Roslin has to make a dangerous journey before she discovers the background of this crime. Police believe a madman was behind the brutal act. Not only Brigitta Roslin s parents are among the dead; almost all the victims were related to her. Brigitta soon becomes convinced that the police are on the wrong track, and she starts to investigate on her own. Her search for the murderer of her entire family leads Brigitta to China, where she is confronted with the gruesome machinations of a millionaire businessman. The two-part thriller is based on the internationally bestselling novel by Henning Mankell (the Inspector Wallander series).

Customer Reviews

This is a well crafted thriller.
Foster Johnson
I realize that human frailty is a key ingredient in adding tension to the plot of a "thriller", but the way it was used in this film was ridiculous.
George M.
The book is fine literature, so expending the effort to read it before viewing the movie will be very rewarding.

It is an excellent movie that will help you reflect on one of the current world issues - revenge based on historical injustice. It is masterfully centered around great abuses that ocurred to the Chinese immigrants who came to America in the 1800s, but the revenge for the abuses are being carried out now. The movie involves the last member of a Swedish family, the only member to have accidentally survived the revenge of a Chinese man who is well trained with the sword. Both social realities for how to see historical abuse are represented in the story. It is a drama that is driven along with a tension of suspense, a suspense driven by when is she going to get it. There are many questions a viewer will take from this thought provoker. A question that I took away from the story is how independent should my family loyalty be in light of a government's design to have all people individualized into the government's mode of behavior as defined by the terms "an obedient citizen".

Women who enjoy watching women control the power position in social dynamics will be satisfied with this movie. All the positions of power are controlled by women except one but that male is nixed out by a woman of authority. Interesting.
I found it an engaging dynamic that seemed pretty realistic except for one aspect that was missing. The one aspect that was missing was the equally prone tendency of corruption that goes along with positions of power. Women are as vulnerable as men, this is also where both sexes are equal.

I got more than I paid for. Watch it and expect to have your mind expanded while entertained.

I read the book, which was really good. I found the movie version a little difficult to follow. I also didn't like the ending. Sorry been watching to many American shows that always end with a good conclusion or at least some kind of conclusion

This very similiar to The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo Trilogy. Very easy to read sub-titles. Exciting (as much as a movie on the computer can be), although not for the squeamish. You know forgein movies. American movies are much less violent.

No stopping this one to go to the bathroom or to get coffee. Super (non-Hollywood) ending. Have recommended to others.

Filmed in Sweden and in China with large casts in both countries with a believable story about revenge across generations. The photography and the acting was first rate.

Exciting, good story line, kept us interested through the whole 3 hours. So good I forgot I was reading what was said instead of hearing the words.

This is not a shoot 'em, bang-bang film. It is just an interesting story that grabs hold of you. I really enjoyed this story and have begun to look for similar stories by the books writer. Wallander is next, I think.

My wife and I really enjoyed this movie. The story line was well written and the excitement keeps one on the edge of their seat until the very end.
