Not horror, but a damn good thriller.
Really enjoyed this romp among the Danish criminal underbelly. Genuinely believable, it completely shattered my illusion that the Danes were chilled, nice people, lol. Might just binge the trilogy.
You don't watch this for the plot, or the dialogue, or likable relatable characters, you watch this for the grittiness. It excelled in grit! I'm real curious where the next film goes, it seemed like we were almost to an end point in this one.
