In the Italian city of Monza in 1978, one of the most traumatic sporting events shook Sweden. Three million Swedes watched their tv’s as the broadcaster confirmed that the driver in the crashed and burning vehicle was Ronnie Peterson. The Next day, Ronnie Peterson dies at a hospital in Milano. In Superswede we hear from Peterson’s family, his friends and the competitors and they all tells their story of the Swedish Formula One phenomena. Johan Croneman at DN writes that it’s “a powerful idol portrait, more a movie about friendship and unity between drivers, than a film about an unusually ruthless period in the story of Formula 1”.
