After working for the Stockholm police for several years, Eric (Rolf Lassgard) returns to his home village to live with his younger brother Leif and work in the local police department. At first welcomed home with open arms, Erik soon forges a path of estrangement and destruction when he single-handedly sets about solving an on-going case concerning the slaughter of local reindeer, a problem that the town cops have been plainly ignoring. When Eric learns that his brother is involved events take a further turn for the worse and violence erupts in the village as the closed-community unites against Erik's quest for truth and, ultimately, justice.

Another well made Swedish crime thriller with an interesting plot that provides a gentle starting point for the rather shocking developments and uncomfortable scenes that follow. Solid performances from Rolf Lassgård and Lennart Jähkel as the Bäckström brothers and Tomas Norström puts in a great turn as Ove, the reluctant murder witness. If you have enjoyed the other Nordic crime feasts, you will like this too.
