The Hunters

Thriller. After the death of his parents, a Stockholm policeman relocates to the country, where he finds his brother embroiled in a criminal reindeer-poaching plot.

After working for the Stockholm police for several years, Erik Backstrom returns to his home village to live with his younger brother Leif and work in the local police department. At first welcomed home with open arms, Erik soon forges a path of estrangement and destruction when he single-handedly sets about solving an ongoing case concerning the slaughter of local reindeer, a problem that the town cops have been plainly ignoring. When Eric learns that his brother is involved, events take a further turn for the worse and violence erupts in the village as the closed community unites against Erik's quest for truth and, ultimately, justice.

In Swedish with English subtitles.
