Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
In this Norwegian conspiracy thriller, scripted by best-selling Swedish novelist Henning Mankell, a Norwegian who's dismantling land mines for the UN is killed in Mozambique during a car chase through Maputo streets. His successor (Terje Stromdahl) discovers it wasn't an accident, investigates, encounters cover-ups, and is dismissed as a conspiracy theorist. Mankell's novels about cop Kurt Wallander have been adapted as a film series (including The White Lioness). Mankell is familiar with Maputo, since he's a resident and runs a theater there. Shown at the Gothenburg Film Festival.
