Storyline

The year is 1975, and the West German embassy in Stockholm is occupied by German terrorists. It's an attack not only on the embassy, but on Sweden's long-standing pride as a peaceful nation. In the aftermath of the violent occupation, the Swedish Security Police suspects the six terrorists had help from the outside, possibly from a group of Swedish sympathizers. But no leads can be found until fourteen years later. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The present takes place before the present of the previous mini-series Death of a Pilgrim (2013), making this a prequel. It's however the other way round with the past (the 1980s), making it a sequel too. See more »

An "old-school" Swedish thriller, with slow pace and temporary thrill
3 November 2015 | by BeneCumbSee all my reviews

I am an old fan of Scandinavian, incl. Swedish crime films and series, have seen presumably all becks-wallanders-falcks, etc., with focus on a single case, sometimes with references to the past, but not necessarily...

So, Den fjärde mannen is in the solid line of the longer series mentioned above, and certainly with several distinct performances (particularly Rolf Lassgård as Lars Martin Johansson and Claes Malmberg as Evert Bäckström), but... As recent years have seen my turning over the films with "modern" approach - additional suspense, fast and sudden shifts, mind-twisting turns - then the story and course of events here seemed a bit arid and protracted, plus I started to figure out the murder-related events too soon. The events take place in three different years, but the transitions are not evenly smooth and some scenes do not provide additional value to the series.

Nevertheless, if you know what to expect and, as regards crime-solving, prefer mind-work to field-work, then you will have meaty and "safe" 3 hours in front of screen. Otherwise, I would recommend Bron/Broen, or similar.
