This police thriller is set in a Stockholm precinct and centers on the issue of drugs and police brutality. Three male cops (Stefan Sauk, Marvin Yxner, and Sven Holm) and one patrolwoman (Pia Green) play fast and loose with their billy clubs against any addicts, punks, or alcoholics that might be disturbing the high-rent district near their precinct station. The station Captain has his job cut out for him trying to keep the four rogue, over-the-edge cops in line, as well as managing the renegade chief narc officer, and still having time for his trombone and love life. According to this film and Stockholm statistics, charges of police brutality are commonly dismissed (in 1986, 95 out of 100 such cases in Stockholm were thrown out).
