The Nile Hilton Incident
The corrupt police officer Noredin (Fares Fares) has established a system of extortion of the local criminals in Cairo to fund his constant drug and alcohol abuse.

But something with the case triggers his curiosity and he begins look into things that were supposed to remain untouched. On TVdags, Per Perstrand writes: "It's as clean and sure in style as Polanski's Chinatown. But with Fares Fares constantly with a cigarette in the mouth instead of Jack Nicholson with a band aid on his nose". He rates the film four out of five. The film was awarded with a total of five Guldbagge awards, including for best film and best actor.
