This is a character driven drama focusing on two brothers in the north of Sweden. A policeman from Stockholm comes up to Norrland in Sweden to join his brother, now that their parents are dead. While there he starts to work on a long-running case where deer have been poached and soon discovers that his brother is involved.

It takes place in a unknown small town beside undisturbed northern nature at its best. The green mountain landscape acts as a theater taking the drama forward. The main actors, especially a singing Lennart Jähkel, are excellent in roles as brothers in a greek tragedy. It's a good paced movie taking itself seriously. A drama so dark in its portrayal of its characters people are calling it a thriller. It's also grey in its morals for those seeing the flaws of our protagonist. The Stockholm police who with no understanding of the local culture triggering the events unfolding.
