Following hot on the heels of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, the tautly constructed Easy Money is the latest exciting Swedish crime thriller to hit America. Complex and dynamic, it’s based on the bestseller by criminal defense attorney Jens Lapidus and was Sweden’s top-grossing film of the year. Set in the violent, multi-cultural criminal underground of Stockholm, it focuses on three desperate men and their separate, soon-to-overlap worlds. The multi-layered screenplay makes it more than mere genre fodder, as it beautifully incorporates themes of parents and children, misplaced values, and greed and corruption.

First we meet escaped con Jorge, who is on his way to broker a massive cocaine deal that will thwart the Serbian mafia controlling the local drug trade. The mafia’s enforcer Mrado is hot on his trail, but luckily for Jorge, so, too, is resourceful economics student/cabbie J.W. who works for Jorge’s Swedish-Arab partners. Although none of the three protagonists might be described as men of high moral fiber, in this world of double-crossing thieves each has their own set of ethics. Hot filmmaker Daniel Espinosa was recently named one of Variety’s “Ten Directors to Watch,” and is currently helming the Denzel Washington vehicle Safe House for Universal.
