Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Unemployment is the subject of this black Swedish comedy and though it is generally funny, it will be most enjoyable with those familiar with Sweden's culture and economic climate. It is the story of Torsten, a bank clerk who is fired by his boss. Devastated and ashamed, poor Torsten becomes so desperate to get his job back that he decides to engineer a bogus bank robbery so he can play hero. Unfortunately, the mock-heist goes awry and he suddenly finds himself responsible for finding 5 million in missing kronor.
