Easy Money review

Joining Scandinavia's impressive array of crime thrillers is Daniel Esponosia’s Easy Money (aka Snabba Cash): the 2010 film that preceded the Swedish director’s US Denzel-starring debut Safe House

Stockholm-set, it follows poor, money-obsessed business student Johan (Joel Kinnaman), whose shallow double life as a high-society playboy is only supported by his descent into organised crime. 

The premise is hardly original and suffers from a story that, by its third act, feels padded out; nonetheless, this is a slick, tense and brutal portrait of a man out of his depth.
