Movie review: The culprit goes on your nerves

In about an hour, it is exciting to sit next to the police Asger Holm (Jakob Cedergren) and see him through the phone try to rotate the world right and rescue a woman.

But with just over twenty minutes filmtid left with the director Gustav Möller shown the situation from all angles he can think of. The pressure flattens out the film while he and Jakob Cedergren put the last pieces in a puzzle that the audience has already passed.

Asger sitting with a headset on a police call centres. He receives the 112 calls. It is a tvångskommendering, he has against his will been removed from the external service. In addition, he has something on the agenda that is pressing. Asger is out of the mood, bitsk against calling, as he often has itself to blame. He is even rude to his colleagues.

So kvicknar he to: a call from a woman who manages to make even though she is sitting next to his abductors in a car. Asger, who knows that he is a problempolis, is getting engaged. He sees a chance to snatch up and make something good.

content to do what he should, quickly relaying the information. He follows the case, calling colleagues and trying to tell them what to do, trying to identify the offender and on the different ways to access and get in touch with him and others involved.

He is convinced that he, from his vantage point on the monitoring station to see how everything is. One suspects that it is such the heated Asger misses.

Gustav Möller is skilled to go on your nerves. You become stressed when the military trimmed and scrubbed Asger to do things their way, and not immediately will forward important information to your colleagues who is looking after the car. One becomes indignant when he takes to the kommandoton to get a henpecked colleague to dubious interventions.

impresses in this debut. But it is fatal close to the virtuoso ”Locke” (2013). Which starred Tom Hardy as a construction engineer who travel by car through the night and by telephone to try to calm abruptly deserted colleagues and family members. They are both movies that can be described as a kind of monologexperiment, where we observe a man who tries to be the protector, and ömkligen fail.

”Locke” was more elaborate, and in addition also a story about a drive. Light were reflected in Hardy's windshield, road signs passed by, advertising messages shone in the night. Such a life can never find Möller on the prosaic psap. Finally it feels. ”The culprit” had made himself as the ambitious one-hour tv drama. It has not the strength to lift to the film.

See more. Three other films about inappropriate police: ” A diabolical trap” (”Touch of evil”, 1958) ”the Border” (1982), ”Suspicious relations” (1990).
