The Father

1 Mins read

The-FatherAnton Svensson is actually the combined talent of Wallander screenwriter Stefan Thunberg and crime novelist Anders Roslund. This sweeping tale of a band of brothers turned ruthless bank robbers is based on the true events of the heists in Sweden. Detective John Broncks investigates a series of bold bank jobs. He sees in the perpetrators something of his own troubled past and drops everything to identify them. As the hunt escalates so does the reckless behavior of the eldest brother, Leo. Through alternating flashbacks, we learn all about the boys and the thrall their estranged father has over them. As Leo seeks to exorcise his personal demons, he careens toward a final confrontation with the authorities. A five-star review and no doubt about it.
