Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
The true story of the last two criminals to suffer capital punishment in Sweden is the basis for this historical drama. In 1876, Tector and Hjert (Janne Calsson and Hans Klinga) had come to the end of their liberty and awaited execution for an accidental murder they committed. For years before that, they had tried to make a living of some kind by petty theft, bouncing into and out of prison, all the while dreaming of getting enough money to migrate to America.
