14 September 2014 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

This movie should not be considered a sequel ,but the second part of the story released fifteen years before .If you are going to enjoy

"Jägarna 2",you have got to see the first effort first.

Even if Erik's brother is absent (and for a good reason) ,his shadows hangs over the whole movie:two brief flashbacks (the two brother's last hug;Leif's singing on the banks of the lake);the CD Erik gives to his nephew.

This is a thriller in disguise:the subject is the reconstruction of a family.Apparently,Peter,his mother Karin (scene of the dinner)and her new companion seem the perfect family.But cracks in the mirror will not be long in coming:Peter's hip is black and blue ,and during the funeral where he is supposed to sing ,a lump comes to his throat and tears flows on his face.

The killer's identity is known well before the ending ,but it does not matter.what's really absorbing is Erik's Relationship with Peter,his remorse "I did not do all that I could to save Leif.I knew our father treated him badly ".Like Torsten is doing with his "son" .Peter is a sensitive self-conscious tormented young man who longs for a father figure ,who wants to know more about this father who disappeared at such an early age in mysterious circumstances ,this father who,like him,loved singing -the second part sheds a new light on him,he was a criminal ,but a victim too.That's why the last sentence is such a relief for the viewer.

I find this second part even better than the first one ,more moving,more endearing .The forest landscapes are superbly filmed ,with an extraordinary sense of space ,and some scenes are so intense that the viewer feels like shouting "no!" ,particularly when Torsten treats Peter as a moving target.

Not to be missed,but definitely after watching the first episode .
