This Monday (10 December), Arrow Films – the UK distributors of The Killing and The Bridge – will be releasing The Hunters (the 1996 prequel to director Kjell Sundvall’s False Trail), on DVD for the very first time in the UK. Featuring the star of the original Swedish Wallander, Rolf Lassgård, The Hunters (previously released in Sweden under its original title Jägarna) is a dark, twisted Nordic Noir set in against the scenic backdrop of Norrland. Thanks to Arrow Films, we have THREE DVD copies of the film to give away to our readership. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.
After working for the Stockholm police for several years, Eric (Rolf Lassgård) returns to his home village to live with his younger brother Leif (Lennart Jähkel) and work in the local police department. At first welcomed home with open arms, Eric soon forges a path of estrangement and destruction when he single-handedly sets about solving an on-going 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 Eric’s quest for truth and ultimately, justice.
To be in with a chance of winning Kjell Sundvall’s The Hunters on DVD, just answer the following simple question:
The Hunters’ Rolf Lassgård is best known for playing which Swedish inspector, a role he has since shared with Kenneth Branagh?
